Citizens for Public Accountability – Monday, July 9 at EWEB, 7:00 PM
PUBLIC BENEFIT vs. PUBLIC SUBSIDIES
*Where is the money coming from?
The planned West Broadway Development Project could cost the taxpayers up to $40 million in public subsidies. Didn't the City just pass a gas tax and a bunch of other fees because they did not have the money to maintain our streets?
The City of Eugene says the money is coming from URA/BEDI/HUD. Say what? Exactly. What on earth do those acronyms mean? Come to this CPA meeting and find out how the City finds money when it wants to.
*What will the citizens get for their money?
CPA's own Rob Handy is on the 11 member Citizens Advisory Committee that the Mayor has named to advise the City Council about this development. At this meeting, Rob will explain what the newly formed committee has done so far, and how they intend to involve the public as the design process moves forward.
Learn how you can get involved and be prepared for both the related public hearing and the Committee's public input session coming up soon...
You may have recently received a seemingly innocuous postcard/hearing notice from the City of Eugene about them...Important decisions will be made about the future of your downtown, come find out all about it!
If you were one of the 150 to 200 citizens who went on CPA's recent "PIT to PIT Walk," come see what you can do next. If you missed the Walk, come learn what's happening!
