Cottage Grove Tobacco Retail Licensing Ordinance Passes
On Monday night, the Cottage Grove City Council cast a second and final vote (6-1) to pass a tobacco retail licensing (TRL) ordinance that closely mirrors the Lane County TRL. While three other cities – Eugene, Springfield, and Oakridge – in the county have had TRL laws since the early 2000s, Cottage Grove is the first city in the county to pass a TRL law that mirrors Lane County’s. The city ordinance does the following:
- Requires a license to sell tobacco or inhalant delivery system products or paraphernalia
- Prohibits new retailers within 1,000 feet of public schools
- Prohibits free samples of products
- Prohibits self-service displays and mobile vending
- Requires posting of health warning and Quit Line information
Additional details can be found in the Cottage Grove Sentinel.

World AIDS Day 2015
HIV Alliance & Lane County Public Health Department Call for Continued Action to Prevent HIV
Eugene, OR—This World AIDS Day (December 1, 2015), HIV Alliance and Lane County Public Health Department are urging the community to remain vigilant in its conviction and dedication to end HIV/AIDS. Agency officials state that while we have reduced new infections, future HIV prevention requires constant attention in order to “Get to Zero.”
“While we have made great strides in reducing the number of new HIV infections, there is still no cure for HIV,” stated Dr. Patrick Luedtke. “HIV is a very persistent and vigorous virus and despite all the new medications, we have not been able to defeat it entirely. So we must stay vigilant; HIV prevention is a long term game.”
