Eugene (KMTR) - A group of design students at the University of Oregon is working with the public to come up with new ideas to help the local homeless population.
The team is called the The Common Good and is made of six students in UO's designBridge group in the School of Architecture and Allied Arts. The group won a $7,000 grant from the Wayne Morse Center at UO's Law School to create something for the homeless population in the Eugene-Springfield area.
Sunday the team held its second community meeting at the Reality Kitchen in Eugene to brainstorm ideas with local residents and start narrowing the scope of the project. More public meetings will likely be scheduled in the new year and interested citizens can also leave comments on the group's website.
