In 2013, One Roof Community Housing, along with the At Home in Duluth Collaborative, identified a focus area just east of the new Lincoln Park Middle School. One Roof Community Housing has been active in this focus area since then and we plan to continue being active in this area The data that we collected will be used to encourage positive change, investment, and to prioritize housing resources in the focus area. In 2016, we collected surveys from residents in the targeted area to hear how they felt about living in Lincoln Park. The Executive Summary can be found here, and the full report, here.
Here are a few highlights:
- Average resident satisfaction increased from 2013 to 2016.
- On average, people are more optimistic about what the next three years will bring now than they were in 2013.
- Overall, the conditions of buildings was observed to have improved from 2013 to 2016.
