Regional Equity Atlas; Wilkes East statistics

How the Regional Equity Atlas benefits everyone

The Coalition for a Livable Future undertook the Regional Equity Atlas Project (www.equityatlas.org) to "advance equity - the right of every person to have access to opportunities necessary for satisfying essential needs and advancing their well-being" - as a key component of the Portland-Vancouver metropolitan region's approach to development.

The Equity Atlas is an attempt to stimulate discussion regarding the distribution of elements seen as critical to the livability of a neighborhood. These include such things as income, single-family home price, poverty, education/teacher quality, access to usable transit, access to grocery and natural food stores, and access to parks and natural areas.
