View Executive Summary
This report proposes the use of a dashboard designed to anticipate areas of need through the overlay of planned projects on maps examining geographies of vulnerability across the city. The GIS dashboard deliverable presents a high-level view of each neighborhood’s unique characteristics that could contribute to risk of displacement as well as the existing assets that could be leveraged in a capacity-building engagement process. It incorporates datasets that center existing community centers and their locations in built environment improvements.
