Urban Action Agenda: 25 Community Profiles

In December 2015, Pattern for Progress, working in partnership with the Regional Plan Association, completed 25 community profiles for the participating Urban Action Agenda (UAA) communities. The profiles capture a broad spectrum of metrics, including housing, income and poverty, education, quality of life and the economy. Where possible, statistics for the county in which the community is located are given to provide perspective. These indicators were chosen in order to not only establish baseline conditions in each community but also to allow for observable trends in the future. Communities may find these profiles useful in a variety of ways, from grant applications to business recruitment efforts to planning studies. We have heard from a number of communities that have already used the profiles in such ways or have posted the profile to their website.
