River Road-Santa Clara Sanitary Sewer Service Plan (memo, resolution <br />full report, amendments distributed) <br /> <br />City Manager Micheal Gleason introduced the agenda item. Terry Smith of <br />Public Works presented the staff report, stating that the council had received <br />the plan document at its work session two months before. He stated that the <br />council would also be considering a set of amendments to the draft document as <br />developed by the Citizen Advisory Team after its April 10 public hearing. He <br />briefly reviewed the history of the development of the Urban Facilities Plan <br />now being recommended by the 15-member CAT. that group having been appointed <br />and guided by an intergovernmental Policy Committee. He said the Sanitary <br />Sewer Service Plan was the first product of the Urban Facilities Plan, being <br />an outgrowth of the Metro Plan policies, a stipulated agreement between Lane <br />County and the Department of Environmental Quality to protect groundwater, and <br />the potential for a $7 million Environmental Protection Agency grant to build <br />the interceptor sewers. He stated that planning for the sewer project must be <br />completed by the end of September 1984 to qualify for the grant. He explained <br />that the Metro Plan stated that urban level of services would be provided <br />within the urban growth boundary and specified the key urban services. He <br />said the plan also directed that Eugene and Lane County develop the Urban <br />Facilities Plan through an active citizen participation process. After 40 <br />meetings and two public hearings. the CAT reached the conclusion that conven- <br />tional gravity sewers following the route referred to as Alternate 3B would be <br />the most cost-effective. Briefly reviewing the findings of the analysis of <br />alternatives, Mr. Smith said the No-Build alternative would be the cheapest <br />alternative but would also place development limitations on the River Roadl <br />Santa Clara area. This alternative would result in increased public cost for <br />constructing streets and other public services to serve the population. He <br />stated that the Build alternative required a change in jurisdiction, either <br />through annexation of the area or incorporation as a new city. He said the <br />Metro Plan identified Eugene as the logical provider of services. He said <br /> <br />MINUTES--Eugene City Council <br /> <br />May 29. 1984 <br /> <br />Page 1 <br />
