The Board of County Commissioners is holding a public hearing regarding the possible referral of a five-year local option levy to support county parks.


The public hearing is Tuesday, August 9, at 1:30 p.m. People can attend in-person at the Lane County Public Service Building in Harris Hall (125 E. 8th Avenue, Eugene) or they can use the log-in link located on the meeting agenda to attend remotely. Following the public hearing, commissioners are expected to decide whether to place the proposed levy on the November 8, 2022 ballot.

In the 2018 Lane County Parks & Open Space Master Plan, the Board of County Commissioners adopted a core goal to “re-invigorate and revitalize targeted parks as thriving, family-friendly outdoor activity hubs through redesign, renovation, and programming to help position Lane County as the best county for outdoor recreation and play.”


The proposed five-year levy at 16 cents per one thousand dollars assessed property value would generate approximately $6 million per year for a total of $31 million over the life of the levy. The levy would improve and invest in parks, trails, water access, water quality and natural areas.
