From the City of Eugene
Eugene’s Community Safety System includes a wide array of services to keep the community safe – from fire to emergency medical services to police to courts to homelessness and prevention services. As the community grew, unmet service needs were identified, as was the necessity for more funding to meet those needs.
As a result, the Community Safety Initiative was developed to enhance or add services to address the identified unmet needs in the Community Safety System. You can learn more about the Community Safety Initiative on the City’s website. This Initiative is supported by a payroll tax the City of Eugene started collecting on January 1, 2021.
A lot has changed since the Initiative was developed from community outreach and surveys conducted almost three years ago. Results of this survey, along with focus group input and public comment, will provide guidance to the City Council as it considers any adjustments to the Initiative. A report will be submitted to City Council for review and discussion at a work session in May of 2021.
This anonymous survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. This survey will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 31, 2021.
The survey, available at surveymonkey.com/r/7TQYVFB, is 14 questions long and takes about 10 minutes to complete.
