EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Eugene city planners say the city may not need to annex 300 acres on its southern boundary after all.

Planners say there was a miscalculation of the land available for single-family homes and the 20-year projected need could be met within the city limits.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1LexBxR) the change in the Envision Eugene proposal was welcomed by residents on the semi-rural outskirts who oppose dense development. But the executive director of the Home Builders Association of Lane County says it will force people to live in other communities.

The city still plans a larger expansion of more than 900 acres near the Eugene Airport to meet the projected need for business sites.
