UE students will conduct survey in Jacobsville neighborhood Saturday | News
A group of students from the University of Evansville will conduct neighborhood surveys from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29, in the Jacobsville area.
The surveying is part of the overall initiative of several nonprofit organizations, churches and businesses to revitalize that area and will take place during those times on various days until Nov. 18. The data collected will serve as a baseline to gauge improvements expected over the next few years.
Students will assess the area from the sidewalk or street and will not enter private property. They will conduct visual assessments of at least 700 properties and will consider conditions of windows, gutters, roofs and other surroundings.
Students participating in the surveying will wear name tags on purple lanyards and will carry a clipboard marked University of Evansville and Habitat for Humanity.
Students will assess these city blocks:
Louisiana – 1st Avenue to Main Street
Oakley – Florida to Maryland
Harriet – Florida to Maryland
Baker – Louisiana to Oregon
Maryland – Oakley to Garvin
Garfield – Columbia to Virginia
