West Eugene Wetlands Education Center Master Plan

The City of Eugene employed Cogito to design and implement a public involvement process for the West Eugene Wetlands Partnership. The process included six focus groups and two public meetings to identify key issues regarding the design of an education center. We also used print and interview surveys to evaluate the needs of the community, as well as the barriers to participating in education programs for Title I schools in the Bethel and 4J School Districts. Sharing the concept designs and listening to the concerns of adjacent property owners was another important component of the project. The knowledge gained fundamentally altered the way the design team conceived of what was necessary to serve the program vision and site capacity. WEW Final Report. Current info on the project.
