Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Marilyn makes an excellent and urgent point (below). Some may have had the impression that the current round of City Boards and Commissions applications are due around the end of the month.
But in fact the applications are due on Friday, 9/18/2009 - ie. tomorrow.
We really need to give our City Councilors and Mayor some good candidates to appoint, especially for the Eugene Planning Commission. With climate change, habitat areas remaining unprotected, and developer interests gearing up for even more sprawling development, we could really use the Planning Commission as a center of progressive, enviromentally-sensitive, creative energy.
The actual application process is pretty simple, and it can be done online:
* CITY OF EUGENE Boards, Committees and Commissions
* Craigs List Ad:
* Online Application:
* Alternative PDF Application to print and submit in hardcopy:
Please consider if this is a way that you can help serve the public and environmental interest of our community, and if you are willing and able, please do apply!
A good Planning Commission help the whole community through progressive, effective planning and land use decisions.
If anyone would like to try to coordinate, feel free to call my direct mobile number, 541-514-4766.
With all best wishes,
Friends of Eugene

Just a reminder that John Lawless, Ann Kneeland and Phil Carrol are all leaving the PC this fall----three progressive folks leaving a big hole in the Planning Commission. The deadline for applying is this Friday, 9/18. ...
Please cajole, bribe and sweet talk your best candidates.
I hear that the development community is coughing up a bunch of applicants, possibly including Anslow. If we lose these seats I wonder what the outlook for Eugene will be.
shaking in my birks,
