County Comprehensive Plans

1955-[ongoing]

Series documents the development and revision of a plan for the use of lands within the county. Series includes plans for transportation, energy, housing, population and economics, public facilities and services, urbanization, natural resources, greenways, recreation, agricultural and forest lands, land capability, resource quality, floodplains, landmarks, historic property, rural community center designation, and natural areas. Each plan includes background information about the subject; supporting documentation such as maps, charts, and diagrams; and a narrative description of each aspect of the plan and how it is to be implemented. Series may also include an overall "comprehensive plan" which contains both historical and current looks at county land practices and defines goals and policies adhered to during the creation and implementation of the plan.

Lane County has two comprehensive plans, one for rural areas (adopted 1984) and one for the Eugene-Springfield metropolitan area (adopted 1982). For more information about the Eugene-Springfield Metropolitan Area General Plan contact the Lane Council of Governments as well as the planning departments for the cities of Eugene and Springfield. The resources below generally refer to the rural plan unless otherwise noted. The Zone and Plan Map Viewer includes comprehensive plan and zoning maps as well as GIS information about roads, political boundaries, tax lots, wetlands, and other subjects.
