Camas Ridge School Design Coming into Focus

Community invited to review, give feedback on initial design for the new elementary school 

Planning for the new Camas Ridge Elementary School is underway and the school design is coming into focus.

Families, neighbors and community members turned out virtually on May 26 to an open house with the design team of Pivot Architecture, to get an update on school design progress, ask questions and give feedback.

Community members who weren’t able to attend the online meeting are invited to review the presentation and share their thoughts: Recorded VideoPresentation Slides / Feedback Form

Camas Ridge Preliminary Design Feedback
open through Sunday, June 6

The architects provided a design update incorporating revisions and design progress through schematic design, and invited questions and feedback directly to the project team to help inform the next steps of design. They started with updates and revisions—responsive to the community feedback received regarding the preliminary building siting concept in March, the project team has refined the site plan including reducing the parking lot and relocating elements to protect an area where a large number of camas bulbs are located.

For each new building, the design process includes two community open houses for design updates and community feedback during the schematic design and design development stages. As the design is further refined, additional design updates will be shared at a second community open house in early fall.

Work at the Camas Ridge site will begin in summer 2022 and the new building will open in fall 2024. The new school building will be designed for safety and security, efficiency and sustainability, and 21st century learning. The new Camas Ridge Community Elementary School will be a high-quality learning environment and community asset for generations to come.

The new Camas Ridge building is funded by the 2018 school bond measure. Voters in Eugene School District 4J resoundingly passed the bond measure in November 2018 to fund capital improvements for 4J schools including the construction of three new school buildings for North Eugene High School, Edison Elementary School, and Camas Ridge Elementary School. Bond funds will be used to repair schools, improve security, update technology and learning materials, support career technical education, and more. Every 4J school will benefit.
