Why Tuesday Nights?
Some neighbors expressed dismay at Tuesday evening meetings and that some other days should be explored that would be more convenient. Setting aside convenience, no time/day is “convenient,” there is a good reason why the JWN settled on Tuesdays.
What about weekends?
Some folks suggested weekend meetings as being especially friendly to families with kids. There are multiple reasons why weekends won’t work:
- Neighborhood meetings are focused on having city, county, businesses, and non-profits come in and inform neighbors and answer questions. City and county staff do not work on weekends and neither do most non-profit or business staff.
- Saturday and Sunday are days of religious observance.
- People like to recreate on weekends and are more likely to go out-of-town.
- Many events that are much more fun than a neighborhood meeting are on weekends.
Why not another day of the week?
The Eugene City Council meets on Monday and Wednesdays, so if we want our elected officials, City Manager, or other city management to be able to come our meetings, we can’t meet those days. That leaves Thursday, not significantly different than a Tuesday, or Fridays, whose proximity to the weekend is a problem. No time or day is going to work for everyone and the desire to attend means prioritizing attendance, making the time because it is important to you.
