Highlighted Policy Paper: Equity in Arlington County Open Public Spaces
Last updated: February, 2021
The Arlington County Civic Federation Parks and Recreation Committee researched equity in access to open public spaces within walking distance and tree canopy in close proximity.
Using mapping data, census data, school data, and property data, the committee estimated access that residents have to these resource by residence type, income, and race. Note: we updated the projections
for the maps; the qualitative results did not change, however, quantiative values did shift.
