About the Santa Clara Community Organization (SCCO)

Santa Clara is a community of 4242 acres on the northern fringe of the City of Eugene, Oregon. It began its existence as a sleepy outpost farming community and officially became Santa Clara in 1890 when Colonel A.J. Straight bought a large chunk of land here and named it after his home in California. The area’s identity became attached to Eugene as large suburban development began here between 1960 and 1975. Today there are about 20,231residents and about 53% of the area is incorporated with the City of Eugene.
