It is the purpose of the ABC to advise the City of Eugene, the Bethel School District (#52), and other public or private bodies concerning the improvement of the livability of the Bethel community.
ABC has been formed to help resolve the concerns of the people of the neighborhood. These concerns include but are not limited to: land use and planning, social, recreational, educational, economic development and transportation needs; and to promote a sense of community cohesiveness and self-reliance.
ABC will also serve in an educational capacity to inform the citizens in this community, and to continue the planning process by periodically reevaluating its goals, objectives, and recommendations. - http://www.activebethelcitizens.blogspot.com/
