About the Crest Drive Citizens Association

The Crest Drive neighboorhood is situated in the south hills of Eugene, Oregon. Characterized by winding narrow roads and forested hillsides, our neighborhood offers a beautiful "country in the city" feeling. We are an active neighborhood association and if you live in the following area, we invite your participation.

The CDCA area runs from Willamette Street at 29th Avenue west along 29th Avenue to Lorane Highway, then north on Washington Street to 28th Avenue, and again west along 28th Avenue to Chambers. From Chambers, the boundary turns north to 24th Avenue, then west to City View. From that point, it follows City View as if it were extended south to the south edge of the McClean subdivision. Next, the boundary runs south and east along the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) to the intersection of Pine Wood and Ridgewood Drives, then moves along Pinewood Drive and east to the west line of Densmores plat. Next, the boundary runs north along the Densmores plat’s west line to 40th Street (if extended west), continues east on 40th Street, north on Densmore Road to 39th Avenue, and east along 39th Avenue to Willamette Street, where it runs north on Willamette to 29th Avenue.
