September Industry Luncheon: “What are infrastructure deserts? Why do they matter?”

Date September 14, 2022
Location Park City Club
Time 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Those two questions get to the heart of a multiyear research project led by SMU’s Barbara Minsker, a nationally recognized expert in environmental and infrastructure systems analysis.
 
Nearly 800 Dallas city neighborhoods were rated on items ranging from streets, sidewalks, pavements and crosswalks to noise walls, bike and pedestrian trails and beyond, with each rating resulting in a neighborhood grade. The data led researchers to identify 62 Dallas neighborhoods as infrastructure deserts: low-income areas highly deficient in infrastructure that creates a safe, functional and economically viable area in which to live.  Is your next project located in an infrastructure desert?
 
The next steps for the study team will include publishing the research results in academic journals and using the framework to study other, even bigger cities—such as New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles.  Join us for this unique opportunity to receive the first industry debrief from Dr. Minsker before her research takes her all over the country.
