BNIA was tasked with using the data produced by HABC for HUD to create data visualizations and a dashboard to track key indicators throughout the project’s timeline. These indicators directly pertain to the Core Goals expressed by HABC.
By tracking indicators such as, Count of Units Under Construction, Commercial and Residential Vacancy, Crime Incidents, and Abandoned Properties, a clearer understanding of the project’s effects on the surrounding neighborhood is possible. Some effects felt by the residents of the Perkins Homes can be tracked by indicators such as, Count of Households Participating in Case Management, PSO Household Relocations by Zip Code, Household Relocations by Housing Type, Job Training Participation, and TANF Participation, as well as Monetary Investment information for the project.
These visualizations are available to view as dashboards on the Perkins, Somerset, Old Town Transformation webpage.
