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.
