How to Participate

Expenditure Review Panel

The Mayor and City Council are accepting applications for one member of the expenditure review panel (ERP) for the Downtown Urban Renewal Plan. This committee will meet at least once a year to review the Urban Renewal Agency’s use of Downtown Urban Renewal funds. The panel will report on whether the expenditure of tax increment dollars was limited to the projects and the associated administrative costs authorized by the Plan. The panel represents a variety of perspectives. The perspective sought for the vacancy is someone who lives, works, or owns property downtown. 

Applications are due March 12, 2018 and can be found here or by navigating to the 2018 Application on the City of Eugene Boards and Commissions site. Applicants will select the ERP from the drop-down menu on the application.

The Mayor will provide a nomination to the Urban Renewal Agency Board for appointment, along with all applications received. The new ERP member will be appointed in early April.

The five member panel will meet in late April to review activities from Fiscal Year 2017 (July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017).  

If you have questions, please contact Allie Camp (541-682-5480 or 

We look forward to receiving your application!
