NEST Community Engagement Survey
Better Eugene-Springfield Transportation (BEST) is exploring the opportunity to create an intentional space called the Nexus for Eugene Sustainable Transportation (NEST).

In this effort, BEST sees itself as a community steward, operating the NEST space at 455 West 1st Avenue in the public interest, leasing it to mission-driven organizations on a sliding scale, below market rates, including possibly very low rates to incubate promising startups. The NEST aims to bring together different, yet complementary, efforts around bicycle and sustainable transportation modes, service, education, innovation, and advocacy.

As BEST creates a vision for the NEST space, community stakeholders' input and involvement is vital. Your answers to the survey will help inform the next steps of the process, establish a clear purpose for the space, and ensure that the legacy of the building continues for future generations.

Please complete the survey by November 15 to help inform plans for the building. The survey should take less than ten minutes to complete, and your responses will be kept confidential. Thank you in advance for your support!
