EUGENE, Ore. — The City of Eugene has agreed to buy property along River Road.
City councilors approved a measure Monday night, allowing the city to use up to $460,000 to buy the land along the 1500 block of River Road.
The move clears the way for low-income housing to be developed.
The funding comes from the federal level in the form of community development block grants.
The city will begin development at this site within a year.
