(1) Purpose. The purpose of the Downtown Riverfront Special Area Zone (S-DR) is to support the creation of an active, vibrant, people place along Eugene’s downtown riverfront that achieves an appropriate balance between redevelopment certainty and flexibility; furthers economic development; incorporates educational aspects; supports the appropriate enhancement of riverfront habitat; and promotes a mix of uses that complement and support existing downtown and riverfront uses.

(2) Design Objectives. The design objectives of the S-DR Zone are to:

(a) Create a “people place” that is active, vibrant, accessible, and multi-use.

(b) Provide appropriate setbacks, deeper where environmental or habitat issues are critical, and shallower in other areas.

(c) Incorporate appropriate building and site design techniques that address environmental concerns.

(d) Include educational aspects that teach about the city, river, and history.

(e) Support development of an integrated network of open space, habitat enhancement, and cultural landscape areas.
