Streetscapes: Potter & University Streets

The Lane County Investment Company placed deed restrictions on lots on Potter and University Streets, requiring a 15 foot setback on Potter and a 30 foot setback on University. The restrictions also stipulated that houses built on these lots must cost a minimum of $2,000. The developers further influenced the look of these streets by planting birch trees in the parking strip, particularly on University Street. However, stone walls and street trees are common throughout the neighborhood.
