Infill Compatibility Standards Task Team (ICS-TT)
The Infill Compatibility Standards Task Team is something like a public involvement committee of the City of Eugene, Oregon Planning and Development Department. A majority of the ICS "team members" have been selected by Eugene Neighborhood Associations to represent each of their neighborhood perspectives. Other team members represent parts of the building development community, and city staff.
The city planning staff person managing the team process is Terri Harding
The two co-chairs, as of a second election to replace Paul Conte who had to resign, are Gordon Anslow, a developer representing the development community, and in the neighborhood chair, Sue Prichard, a neighborhood representative on the task force whose professional work is as a commercial realtor.
