Transient Room Tax (TRT) Task Force Meeting


Thursday, October 11, 2012, 3-5PM
at Lane Workforce Partnership, 1500 Valley River Dr, Eugene

At the request of the Lane County Board of Commissioners,
County Administrator Liane Richardson was asked to create
a Transient Room Tax (TRT)* Task Force,
to evaluate the distribution of room tax funds
collected throughout Lane County,
and report back with recommendations. 

 This is the first time in nearly 20 years that TRT* distributions have been reviewed.
Your attention is vital to our mission!
This will be the only opportunity for public/stakeholder testimony.  

 At this time, it is unclear how much TRT* revenue is collected at RV Parks.
It is our position that if the contributions by RV Park guests were
more clearly defined, every business and community leader in
Lane County, and beyond, would respond vigorously
to welcome the RV guest.

 For questions contact Bradley Waring at: 541.521.4277
or by email at:

Lane County 2012 TRT Task Force web page

If you are unable to attend, written testimony is encouraged by the Task Force.
Send written testimony to:
Alex Cuyler
Lane County Intergovernmental Relations Manager

*(TRT) Transient Room Taxes are collected by RV Parks from their guests. Oregon law established this tax requiring at least 70 percent of net revenue be used to fund tourism promotion or tourism-related facilities. Lane County collects and distributes millions of dollars each year.
