Expanding Eugene Oregon’s Urban Growth Boundary

image006

Support and opposition is nearly evenly split regarding expanding the urban growth boundary with 42% supporting to 41% opposing.

This kind of even division should be no surprise. Mayor Kitty Piercy has never received more than 52% when she had a challenger on the ballot.

The key demographic split is along party lines. Republicans are much more supportive  (66% to 20%) than Democrats and Independents (34% to 48%).

Note that since this is not going to be a money measure, undecided voters are likely to break based on the relative shares of the decided vote.
