We’ve designed a measurement system to analyze the impacts of these investments on the sites and in surrounding communities and to track progress toward our four main goals.
The data collection process will take us into the public places we’re reimagining and the neighborhoods nearby to understand how visitors are interacting with each place—and how the place is supporting a more engaged, equitable, sustainable and economically vibrant community. We’ll also use publicly available data and in-depth analyses to evaluate the changes over time.
We will build a sense of community that brings people of all backgrounds back into public life as stewards and advocates shaping their city’s future.
Stewardship and advocacy
We will create places where everyone belongs and that generate opportunities for shared experience among people of all incomes and backgrounds.
Mixing on site
Bridging social capital
We will increase access to nature and create environmentally friendly places easily reached by walking, biking or transit.
Access to nature
We will encourage additional investments in neighborhoods to foster local businesses and change the perception of safety while maintaining neighborhood affordability.
