Greetings Laurel Hill Valley Neighbor!

You can help our Laurel Hill Valley neighborhood to improve, get stronger and more connected.It’s easy – just take the survey.

You might recall, back in 2018 there was talk of developing a Laurel Hill Village for Aging in Place. In September 2021, a group of interested neighbors revived this idea but expanded it to a wider inclusiveness of Neighbor to Neighbor services. Imagine access to free, traded, or discounted yard work, childcare, handyperson services, transportation, or aging in place support. Think about food sharing, house sitting, dog walking and help in emergencies. Our goal is a neighborhood infrastructure, including people and processes, to support programs which will improve neighborhood resiliency and sense of community.  This survey was designed as part of a research project of LHV neighbor Dr. Yizhao Yang, UO Professor of Planning, Public Policy and Management. Stan Dura, another LHV resident, assists with project design, coordination, and data analysis. The survey data will provide information to help launch Neighbor to Neighbor Services in 2022. We hope an active Neighbor to Neighbor system will naturally branch out into an Aging in Place program.

The survey is voluntary. Results will be kept confidential.

Please share and encourage all adults in your household to complete this survey. It will be active from February 10 – March 31, 2022.

If you have questions or concerns about this survey, please contact Stan Dura or Yizhao Yang

We are sincerely grateful for your time and effort to help us in this endeavor!  Thank you! - The Laurel Hill Village Committee, a subcommittee of the Laurel Hill Valley Citizens
