Eugene's Multi Unit Property Tax Exemption ballot initiative debate
The Unsettled Future of Eugene’s Multiple Unit Property Tax Exemption: A Debate
The City of Eugene’s controversial multiple unit property tax exemption (MUPTE) program has been under a lot of scrutiny in recent years.
The City of Eugene has used MUPTE to enable re-development of underutilized areas in our downtown. Now, neighborhood activist Paul Conte has produced a ballot initiative that would repeal this program. So we ask the question: Should we retain MUPTE as a tool to enable downtown re-development, or should we eliminate it?
