Please paying attention to the on-going action in the controversy about approving a 34-lot subdivision next to Hendricks Park and the Ribbon Trail. Neighborhood groups opposed to this Planned Unit Development emphasize that it’s not just an issue concerning close residents. People throughout the city and the nature of Eugene itself would be affected. The forested borders of the South Hills form a unique and irreplaceable urban environment available for our recreation and viewing pleasure. Plans for the Capital Hill PUD propose to cut between 43% and 51% of the more than 900 existing trees larger than eight inches diameter. The result would be, in effect, a clear-cut on hillsides identified as vulnerable to high landslide hazard. Homes that could be built there would not be affordable by people with lower or even middle incomes. The Urban Growth Boundary would hardly be affected by denying this PUD. For more information: <www.nocapitalhillpud.com> A twice-postponed Official Hearing is now scheduled for Wednesday, March 7.
