Neighbors Await Details of Jeppesen Acres Road Project

By Kelsey Card

EUGENE, Ore. — Neighbors along Jeppesen Acres Road hope they’ll get details Monday night about the city’s plans to improve their road.

Most who live in the area hope Public Works holds off on the project until they know a little more about it.

Many neighbors oppose the $1.2 million plan to stretch the road, re-pave it and bring in sidewalks.

That money would come from property owners to the tune of $15,000 to $20,000 for each home.

But cost isn’t the only thing neighbors worry about.

“The main concern that most of the neighbors have is that the smoother and wider it is, the faster people drive down the street,” said neighbor John Fischer.

The meeting is Monday, May 21 and starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Sheldon Community Center.
