The City of Eugene is seeking motivated volunteers from around our community to serve on the Eugene Planning Commission.
Participation on the Planning Commission is an excellent way to get involved in local government, and is an interesting and challenging experience that can truly make a difference. Previous experience with planning or development is NOT a requirement. The unique perspective of community members and a willingness to learn about different aspects of the planning process helps the City better consider the impacts of City decisions.
Community members who serve on the Planning Commission provide an invaluable service by assisting the City Council and City staff in developing recommendations and making decisions on issues that affect our community, including housing, economic development, livability and transportation.
The Planning Commission is a seven member group that meets about two to four times per month. Meeting are typically held on Mondays from 11:30am to 1:30pm with an occasional Tuesday evening meeting. There are two openings with four year terms that begin July 1, 2017.
Applications are being accepted by March 31, 2017. For application materials, visit http://www.eugene-or.gov/86/Boards-and-Commissions.
