Envision Eugene Technical Advisory Committee (EETAC)

EETAC Meeting

The Envision Eugene Technical Advisory Committee (EETAC) will play a key role in two Envision Eugene implementation projects—the Growth Monitoring program and Urban Reserves planning. During the Envision Eugene process a group of highly-involved volunteers, called the Technical Resource Group (TRG), provided guidance and reviewed data. Though the EETAC has been developed out of the Technical Resource Group, it will be a new committee with its own structure and work plan.

The EETAC will review technical information used to inform policy decisions, provide feedback to staff on technical-related issues, and maintain institutional memory regarding assumptions and analysis related to long-term growth management-related efforts (specifically related to the urban reserves and growth monitoring programs). The early focus of the EETAC will be urban reserves planning and will shift to growth monitoring, with a period of time focusing on both projects.

EETAC Roles and Responsibilities 

The role of the committee is outlined in the EETAC Bylaws. EETAC member duties include, but are not limited to:

  • Learning about and understanding the factors for monitoring Eugene’s growth;
  • Providing guidance to staff related to the technical aspects of urban reserves planning and growth monitoring; and
  • Serving as liaisons--connecting the general public, key community members, community groups and organizations to the urban reserves and growth monitoring work, and encouraging participation in both processes.
  • See meeting schedule below.
