EUGENE, Ore. -- The city of Eugene is conducting a survey to gain feedback from residents on community safety.

The feedback from the survey will be combined with the results of a phone survey conducted earlier in the summer.

The survey features 25 questions that ask how you feel in your neighborhood and downtown. It also asks if you're aware of community services and if you think the city can make Eugene safer.

The city council will use the information from both surveys to assess safety and priorities for outcomes.

Eugene resident Jane Storms said she's been the area for 25 years and has never had issues.

"I come from Los Angeles, so Eugene is no problem," Storms said.

Another man told me he's noticed the area getting "sketchier."

"It's just that people have been getting robbed more," Eugene resident Reese Norman said. "I just saw someone get attacked by a machete over down the street there. I feel like the homeless population is growing more there and I feel like the whole area is getting unsafe."

The survey can be accessed online and should only take about five to ten minutes, according to the city’s website. To take the survey, click here.

The city of Eugene will be holding events to get residents involved in keeping the community safe. For a list, click here.
