RG27.3 West Eugene collaborative

A group of citizens from all walks of life have been meeting for the past 18 months to build a sturdy solution to the traffic snarl that is west Eugene. Next week they are offering a series of open houses to give the community a progress report. But don’t expect a road solution. They don’t have one. Yet. All this time has been spent learning the issues, appreciating the complexity, and building trust across partisan lines. Is there a solution that will garner support from more than 55% of the population? That’s what they are searching for.
