Weigh In on Design Direction for New Edison Elementary School

Community invited to comment

Voters in Eugene School District 4J approved a bond measure in November 2018 to fund capital improvements at every 4J school and replace three aging school buildings with high-quality facilities built for school safety, sustainability, modern seismic standards, and 21st century education.

In the South Eugene region, two elementary school buildings will be replaced: Camas Ridge Elementary School and Edison Elementary School. Responsive to community input, both new schools will be built on their current existing sites, and the new Edison will be constructed first, followed by Camas Ridge. A temporary school location will be created at the Willard school site at 29th and Lincoln to house school operations during construction.

Before beginning schematic design for the new Edison Elementary School building to serve current and future Edison families and fit the South University neighborhood, Eugene School District 4J is seeking community feedback on potential design directions.

A community meeting was held at Edison on June 17 to share updates about the design and construction process; discuss what we have heard from prior community engagement including school safety, neighborhood fit, community connections, and historic character; and hear more from the community on what is important in the design of the new elementary school building to serve the Edison neighborhood. Participants reviewed a range of possible design directions for the new school and provided input.

Those who were not able to attend the meeting are invited to share their thoughts in an online input form open through Sunday, July 7. Thank you for taking a few minutes to provide your input.
