UO Livability Focus Groups

Do you have opinions about what makes your community livable?  If so, researchers at the University of Oregon are interested in hearing from you.  

The term “livability” is frequently used and promoted by communities across the United States. In Oregon, various local communities, including some state agencies, seek to improve livability. But what is it? The Community Service Center at the University of Oregon wants to know what you think livability is, specifically as it relates to transportation and land use patterns in your neighborhood. This survey will help Oregon governments and organizations better understand your community’s needs and preferences.

If you would like to share your opinions, we invite you to participate in a focus group. We will be holding focus groups on Thursday, May 4th from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM in Eugene at 942 Olive Street (next to LCC downtown) and on Thursday, May 11th from 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM in Springfield at the Springfield Public Library.  Please fill out the RSVP survey, linked below, so we will know if you are available to attend.

The focus group will be 90 minutes in length with a short break halfway through. Light refreshments will be provided and we will hold a raffle for an opportunity for participants to win a gift certificate. If you have questions, please contact Bob Parker ( rgp@uoregon.edu)
