The City of Eau Claire Neighborhood Survey is a Residential Environmental Quality Assessment (REQA) survey. This survey was developed to provide a method of rapidly assessing the environmental quality of a given neighborhood. The survey method uses objective criteria to obtain a numerical index which will indicate the general level of the residential environment.
These numbers are used to calculate and color-code a property, block and/or neighborhood area to identify those locations in need of closer attention and inspection due to poor maintenance and deterioration. The survey areas are divided in to five areas. All residential properties within the City of Eau Claire will be surveyed once every five years.
