Eugene Ready! Exercise May 22 at Alton Baker Park

Eugene Ready! Exercise May 22 at Alton Baker Park

PathFinderEX and Eugene Neighborhood Associations are scheduled to hold Eugene Ready!, a disaster preparedness exercise, May 22, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. , at Alton Baker Park in Eugene, Ore.

The event, which is supported by the Eugene Community and Neighborhood Matching Grant, is scheduled to be held at 100 Day Island Road, in Eugene, Ore. This event was originally scheduled for Sept. 12, 2021 at Amazon Park, in Eugene, Ore., but postponed due to high case levels of COVID-19.

Event attendees will participate in valuable training in emergency and disaster planning, team coordination, and neighborhood response coordination. Participating vendors include American Red Cross Cascades Chapter, Med-Tech Resources LLC, Western Shelter and EMT Associates.

“The hope is that by holding neighborhood events like this, communities can better know what to do, what resources they already have, and what goes into planning for an emergency or disaster,” said Chris Webb, Director of Community Outreach for PathFinderEX.

As a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit, PathFinderEX accepts tax-deductible contributions which help community members train and prepare for disasters.

PathFinderEX provides disaster preparedness tools, online training, and in-person exercises to build a community of disaster response professionals, and to empower individuals to become fully-capable community responders.

Online Public Meeting

Eugene Parks and Open Space acquired a new park at the end of Bloomberg Road in August 2020 named “Black Oak Basin Park.”

The public acquisition of Black Oak Basin Park was made possible largely through a grant from the Willamette Wildlife Mitigation Program, which requires that a conservation easement be placed on the property and that we develop a Land Management Plan for actions planned at the park over the next 10 years. Our draft plan is complete and ready for your input.

Please visit the Black Oak Basin project page to:

open house flyer
On Wednesday, February 16, at 4:00 p.m. and again at 5:00 p.m., join Lane County staff and the project team for an online open house to learn about the East 30th Avenue Active Transportation Plan and provide feedback.

The 30th Avenue corridor currently supports greater speeds and volumes of vehicle traffic, but lacks infrastructure for people to walk and bike safely and comfortably. The planning process will explore issues and opportunities through technical analysis and public involvement, including property owners, Lane Community College, Lane Transit District, Oregon Department of Transportation and the cities of Eugene and Springfield.

The plan will result in recommendations for improving walking, biking, safety and comfort on the corridor which will enable securing future construction funding. The planning effort will continue through 2021. See below for meeting information.
