While current city rules require projects that miss deadlines for action to begin the process over again, a deadline extension being considered by the Eugene City Council could save developers thousands of dollars.

“We have a lot of projects at that stage. They’re on hold,” said Steve Nystrom, Eugene’s principal planner. “Dozens are a fair estimate. There might even be more than that. … We’re hearing from the applicants that they are trying to weather the storm and they want the projects to go forward. They just can’t do it now.”
