The City of Springfield is pleased to welcome Allie Camp as our next Economic Development Manager.

Camp comes to the City with 10 years of public and private sector experience across land use, planning, transit, construction, and new development. Most recently, she served as the City of Eugene’s Development Investment Liaison, assisting customers through the processes and incentives to make their project successful. Camp played a key role in projects in the Downtown Urban Renewal District, including acquiring the 1059 Willamette Street site for Eugene’s first mixed income housing project.

Camp’s time at the City of Eugene included work in Eugene’s Riverfront Urban Renewal District where she supported the land acquisition, establishment of the funding oversight committee, plan amendments, and multiple land use applications for the project. Most recently, she has been supporting the developers through the complexity of building on site. This ground-up experience in land preparation and administration of tax increment financing will serve the City of Springfield well for the future of Glenwood’s riverfront.

“Allie brings a wealth of knowledge, an incredibly positive outlook and a focus on customer service which we believe will benefit our entire community,” said Assistant City Manager Niel Laudati. “We are excited and fortunate to have her lead our economic development team.”

Camp will lead a three-member Economic Development team with an immediate focus on Glenwood Riverfront redevelopment, downtown urban renewal and business retention and recruitment. She is scheduled to start on November 7.

“Springfield’s future is bright,” said Allie Camp. “As a resident of Springfield, I’ve experienced the momentum of our community over the last decade. I’m excited to build upon this momentum for another decade and more of continued success.”

Allie received her Bachelors in Urban Studies from the University of Pittsburgh in 2010 and a Masters in Community and Regional Planning from the University of Oregon in 2013. She also serves as a board member and coach for Girls on the Run of Greater Oregon as a representative of the Willamette Valley.
