Commercial Node – Maxwell and North Park

State and city planning goals addressed by the actions recommended in this section:

  • Climate Change
  • Energy Resilience
  • Compact Urban Development
  • Neighborhood Livability

Another sensible location for important shops and services already has a convenience store and several other businesses. Directly across the street is a multi-acre parking lot and a used restaurant equipment store. There are no other food stores of any size for at least half a mile and then only convenience stores. The parking lot could become a mixed use development with shops and businesses below and residential above.

  • Maxwell and Park
  • Trinity Methodist Church

Mixed use Action Items
Again, a good place for citizen, city and business collaboration. Form a citizen committee to research ideas for making better use of this area, perhaps with students from UO as a class or student project with help from students at North Eugene High School.
