In Summer 2016, the Paseo Public Prototyping Challenge conducted surveys to learn from the public what challenges they see facing the City of San José. Browse the outcomes of our work and contribute to the public dataset by taking the online Paseo survey below!
We sought to identify the 16 most important issues facing San José today. We then asked the public, “What are the 5 biggest problems facing the City of San José?”
The resulting data from our clipboard surveys will help San José State University students build innovative prototypes to solve real-world problems through civic innovation and multidisciplinary collaboration in the Paseo Public Prototyping Challenge.
In an effort to include even more of San José’s public, our survey team – lead by Corinne Okada Takara – set up publicly accessible boards in the following downtown areas: South First Friday , Alum Rock Farmer’s Market, and over a weekend at SJSU’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library. Each board asked the question, “How can we make San José a better place to live, work, and play?” with participants given clipboard surveys, post-it notes and pens to respond with. Take a look at what people had to say and where they were saying it below.
