This session includes presentations showcasing two case studies about how race and inequality have been analyzed in both a planning process and implementation program.  The case studies will include the Capital Area MPO Demographic Accessibility Assessment and the approach used by the City of Dallas as part of its Neighborhoods Plus Program. The CAMPO Demographic Accessibility Assessment was included as part of the agency's ongoing 2045 Regional Active Transportation Planning process.  The assessment includes an analysis of high-quality active transportation infrastructure and its location in the region, and underlays the information with demographic and social data such as race/ethnicity, income, poverty, zero-car households, senior population, school-age children, and public health data. The assessment is being used to analyze accessibility equity to active transportation infrastructure based on the selected factors. The City of Dallas' Neighborhoods Plus program which uses a context sensitive approach to address the needs of each neighborhood in the city. The presentations will provide planners with an understanding of how policy impacts on equity can be assessed and addressed through a data driven approach, as well as how community needs vary based on the intersection of various social determinants.
