Eugene Hosting Fix It Fair

EUGENE, Ore. — The city of Eugene is getting ready for its first-ever Fix It Fair.

The fair will host several workshops that will focus on everything from energy conservation to foreclosure intervention.

The city hopes that by offering these workshops they’ll be making important resources more available to people who live in the community.

“The idea is really trying to bring a lot of these resources directly to the neighborhood. There are a lot of free or affordable strategies that are available through community organizations and we want to let neighbors know about what they can do,” said Babe O’Sullivan, Sustainability Liaison at City of Eugene.

The Fix It Fair is Saturday, Jan. 26 at Willamette High School from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The whole event is free, including the food and coffee.

    This is an excerpt from this article: “The fair will host several workshops that will focus on everything from energy conservation to foreclosure intervention.”

    Well what about the thousands of lights on buildings through out the city of Eugene that remain on during daylight hours?????????????????

    Almost every single business in this town has a light burning in the daylight hours, including EWEB! I might add that the new EWEB building has their temperature set at 73 degrees when it should be set at 68?????????????????

    People spout about conservation but don’t do the most basic of things to reduce energy use!

    It’s just amazing to me! It’s all talk and nothing more!
