Review of Eugene, Oregon

Trash town
Star Rating - 8/27/2019
Nice if you're a drug addict criminal. But if you re an innocent person with career goals stay away. You'll be robbed, stalked, tormented and basically tortured until you're forced to move. I've only lived here a year and the amount of break ins and robberies I've had is shocking. the police do nothing, I kick homeless people out of my backyard every day and they leave behind all kinds of needles and broken glass. Avoid Eugene at all costs, not even worth stopping in, I'd take the long way and drive around it. This town is a stain on the otherwise beautiful Oregon.

We woke up one-morning thanks to our dog and a man had cut a hole in the window and had his hand inside. Even when my husband arrived at the door the man didn't even act scared or leave until my husband showed him a knife. The man just walked away slowly like he had every right to break in. I don't think their population statistics are correct. There are more people than places to live and the corporations are deforesting everything we moved here for to put in strip malls and huge apt buildings There are lots of slumlords named "property management" renting trash housing for too much. Do not sign up with or rent from property management. They will rob you blind. They take a hundred applications for which they charge you about $50.It becomes obvious that they continue to let people pay the $50 when they know they already have an eligible applicant. I looked at one little apt. for $900. and the carpet smelled like urine. We walked in the next room and there were heroin needles on the floor.
