Envision Eugene Technical Advisory Committee (EETAC): 4-year term, 1 position (full term)

(Appointed by City Manager)

Description: 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.
