Eugeneans Evenly Divided on City Hall Plan

image002

Eugeneans are evenly split between approval and disapproval. This is similar to results from last May when the split was 46-46 (http://lindholmcompanyblog.com/?p=10666).

This even split implies the city hall proposal is relatively controversial. Government officials who have invested significant planning effort studying an issue generally get some level of deference.

Though posed as a slightly different issue, the support in February to build a new city hall was 53-40. (http://lindholmcompanyblog.com/?p=10308)

Earlier surveys provide other relevant results. In January 2013, there was overwhelming support for keeping the the current location.
