Campus managers say the hope is to bring lighting to areas that are dark and see a lot of traffic. They say getting the feedback from those other than school officials is helpful.
“Most of us that make these decisions work in the daytime. We’re not on campus at night, so it’s just a good way to get people’s input into where they feel unsafe on campus and where we should put our efforts into lighting,” said Tim King, UO Facility Manager.
UOPD says this also helps them determine areas that need more patrolling. This is a year event that’s happened for the last 20 years.
