On Wednesday, November 5, CHPC and the New York State Association for Affordable Housing (NYSAFAH) held an event to launch CHPC’s Making Neighborhoods project. The event was a success, generating buzz about our work and how we can apply our beautiful interactive mapping tool to the housing industry and government policy.
At the event, CHPC presented the major takeaways from its study of demographic change between 2000 and 2010. We also walked the audience—a range of housing developers, urban planners, architects, and government agencies—through the methods of the research and why this work is unique among neighborhood-level research currently being done elsewhere.
Thanks to project funder: The New York Community Trust; our event hosts, Citi; and NYSAFAH, our co-organizers of the launch.
