About the City:
Eugene has been hailed as "A Great City for the Arts & Outdoors" due to its unique and exciting mix of arts, culture, education, scenic beauty and passion for recreation.

Eugene is the second largest city in the state of Oregon and the county seat of Lane County. It is located in the Willamette Valley between the rugged Pacific coast and the breathtaking Cascade Mountains, about 50 miles east of the Oregon Coast. Eugene boasts more than 100 city parks, 250 miles of bicycle trails, and numerous lakes, rivers and streams nearby that offer a wide range of recreational activities to residents and visitors. Eugene's mild climate and lush landscape are a few of the City's attractive features.

Eugene is well-known as the home of the University of Oregon. With 20,000 students and over 6,000 employees, the University plays a major role in the community, as does Lane Community College and Northwest Christian University. The employment base has become increasingly dominated by services, trade, and government, and less reliant on the timber industry. Eugene has a well-educated labor force with nearly 35% of the adult population having completed four or more years of college.

Eugene is a friendly, progressive community with residents who are active and concerned about quality of life issues. The University brings a more cosmopolitan feel to the community, and the collegiate teams have contributed excitement and pride on a regional basis. The City's Hult Center for the Performing Arts, recognized as the finest facility of its type in the state, brings renowned entertainers to the community throughout the year. It is home to seven resident companies, including among others the Eugene Symphony, Opera, Ballet, and the internationally acclaimed Oregon Bach Festival. Many residents are health and fitness oriented, and Eugene hosted the Olympic Trials for Track and Field in 2008 and is scheduled to host the trials in 2012.

Living in the City of Eugene offers all of this along with the advantages of higher education, a strong public school system, and a short commute to work.

The City of Eugene values diversity in its workforce, and is committed to Affirmative Action.
