Willamalane Park and Recreation Comprehensive Plan
Willamalane Park and Recreation District (“Willamalane”) requests that the City of Springfield and Lane County adopt the 2023 Park and Recreation Comprehensive Plan (“2023 Plan”). This Plan is an update to the previous 2012 Park and Recreation Comprehensive Plan. Adoption of the 2023 Plan entails adding it as the Recreation Element of the Springfield Comprehensive Plan, text amendments to the Eugene-Springfield Metropolitan Area General Plan (Metro Plan); and an amendment to Lane Code 16.400 to reflect the 2023 Plan’s adoption for the portion of Willamalane's planning area outside the Springfield urban growth boundary and the Metro Plan boundary, where the Lane County Rural Comprehensive Plan applies. Lane County’s separate staff report addresses Lane Code amendments.
