New Southcoast Urban Indicators Project measures vitality of New Bedford and Fall River
The Urban Initiative at UMass Dartmouth recently launched the SouthCoast Urban Indicators Project. The project takes a look at how well the SouthCoast region is doing on measures of health care, education, the economy, civic vitality, and safety. We are particularly interested in seeing how the project will track civic vitality in the future and see it as a model for developing benchmarks and inciting discussion around policy issues in other Gateway City regions. Check it out to see how the SouthCoast region is faring and provide your feedback as it continues to evolve.
