Everyone Village is located in the West Eugene Community Organization neighborhood, adjacent to Mattie Reynolds Park off Bailey Hill Road. The park honors one of Eugene’s founding Black families and champions for civil rights, Sam and Mattie Reynolds. The Reynolds family were among other Black families evicted to the West 11th Avenue area in 1949 so that Ferry Street Bridge could be built.

West Eugene Community Organization

When we moved to the neighborhood, we learned that the neighborhood association hasn’t been active in over 20 years! We contacted Human Rights and Neighborhood Involvement and are working to reactivate this valuable community resource.

We have been donated space at the Hampton Inn’s meeting room (3780 W. 11th Ave) and are planning a Tuesday January 18th 5:30pm – 7pm Neighborhood General Meeting for both the West Eugene and Far West Neighborhood Associations.  This meeting will also be hosted on zoom.
