The school garden at River Road/El Camino del Rio Elementary needs your help!

Hello River Road friends & neighbors,

I've been part of a team of School Garden Project volunteers caretaking the fantastic school garden at River Road/El Camino del Rio Elementary this summer. Now that school is starting up again soon, we'd really like to get it ready for kids to plant in so that they can have good learning experiences in the garden this year.

River Road Parks and Recreation In Annexation Limbo

Annexation, the gradual but inevitable process of adding property within Eugene’s Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) to the city, is by far the hottest topic on River Road. It frames just about every issue affecting the neighborhood, from how outmoded storm drains are dealt with to who takes the call when an emergency happens.
The June 11th River Road Community Organization general meeting examined one potential casualty of the annexation process, the River Road Parks and Recreation District.

Drywell Decommissioning

Drywell decommissioning

A pilot project is getting underway off of Howard Ave around Escalante and westward.

The City of Eugene is planning to construct drainage improvements in your area. The project will eliminate the drywells in the streets in your neighborhood and connect the existing drainage system to the primary drainage network in the area. The work will improve the drainage system, help prevent future flooding, and protect groundwater quality.

This work is City funded and there will be no direct charges to you for the work.
