Should Eugene Build a New City Hall or Refurbish and Old Building?


Eugene voters strongly prefer refurbishing to building. This is a common survey result since refurbishing is seen as less expensive than building. A better interpretation, since no immediate refurbishing plan is out there, is that Eugeneans are very, very cost sensitive. Considering the continual cost overruns and planning delays, who can blame them.

QUESTION: Should the City of Eugene build a new city hall or buy and refurbish an existing building?
IF BUILD/BUY: Is that strongly or somewhat?
IF DON’T KNOW: Which way do you lean?

METHODOLOGY: 200 live telephone interviews of likely City of Eugene 2016 General election voters were conducted September 13-15, 2016. The margin of error at the sample median is 7%.
