Active Bethel Community (ABC) was chartered by the City of Eugene in May 1974 as Active Bethel Citizens. As soon as we have presented our revised bylaws and charter to the city council, we will officially become the Active Bethel Community. We are one of 19 neighborhood associations recognized by the City.

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.
