Community Engagement

Over the past six months, the Eugene Town Square design team, led by Cameron McCarthy and the City of Eugene, have been actively engaging with community members and stakeholders to envision and create a Town Square for everyone to gather and enjoy. In May and July, two separate surveys were conducted to learn more about community member’s vision for this central gathering space and to help refine the designs. Over 1,000 community members responded to each survey. Since beginning the conversation, the project has held two unique and highly interactive large public events hosting over 750 people, and over 35 outreach events total. The design team has had small group conversations with over 50 key stakeholders as well.
