The NLC COS is a group of Eugene residents with a care for the health and well being of the natural world and community. We are a sub committee of the Neighborhood Leaders Council [see below]. Each member of the group is recognized as representing her/his respective neighborhood association.
The COS has been active for over five years and is best known for organizing green bike tours during the summertime. Over the past five years, we have lead over 35 bike tours in ten of Eugene’s neighborhoods, with over 500 people attending. We also organize the Green Neighbors Fair and are regulars at the Good Earth Green Home Show.
We invite new members. There is plenty to do and new ideas for greening Eugene are welcome. Please contact us. Finally, please inquire about our speakers bureau. We can address many issues and topics, especially of interest to greening the neighborhood.
The Eugene Neighborhood Leaders Council (NLC) is an all volunteer, non-governmental, advocacy organization focused on making Eugene a great place to live by strengthening Eugene neighborhoods. The charge of the NLC Committee on Sustainability is threefold: 1) to provide a city-wide forum for the exchange of ideas and recommendations for more sustainable practices within neighborhoods; 2) to create recommendations for implementing such practices that can be distributed to all neighborhood associations as well as to the NLC; and 3) to foster connections among the NLC, neighborhood associations and community groups for promoting sustainable practices.
May this site help with the exchange of ideas and help foster connections in Eugene and the larger community.
