Vegetation Program Background

The Road Maintenance Division implements an Integrated Vegetation Management Program on Lane County right-of-ways based on guidance received from the community via facilitated public input. Our work is driven by these recommendations and the related practices encoded into law.


The Lane County Vegetation Management Task Force met throughout 2015 to develop specific vegetation management options for Road Maintenance. This diverse committee considered many hard questions from worker safety to herbicide use to limited funding. Their consensus-based recommendations form the basis of Ordinance 16-07 and was encoded into law by the Board of County Commissioners when passed in July 2016.
