S-W

Thanks, Jim, for raising the subject of "data points". The Palm Beach Post story saying that south Florida is the dominant region producing super bowl players was by Matt Porter on January 22. http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/sports/football/palm-beach-county-especially-the-muck-to-be-well-r/nT4cm/ Palm Beach County is home for seven players who will be in the Super Bowl and five of them are from Belle Glade-Pahokee.

The Seven50 meeting on January 24 was superb. Your interest in "data points" invites more and I'm sending copies of several documents.

Enterprise Foundation was founded with a profound commitment to urban sensibility. Among their interests has been "neighborhood transformation". That asks "if a neighborhood is producing unsatisfactory outcomes for people and very high costs to society, wouldn't we be right to make substantial investment to get better outcomes and lower costs to society? Can we make such investment more politically feasible by measuring return on investment?" The Chairman of Enterprise Foundation was James W. Rouse with whom I had worked and he asked me to help. It was anticipated that three neighborhoods would be selected of which Sandtown-Winchester in Baltimore and Overtown in Miami were to be two. We did a pretty good job of establishing baseline data for those two towns and that data might helpful to Seven50 (and the Liberty City revitalization project).

Five documents are being sent to you in printed form (and as pdf files on a CD). More detailed documents and databases are available if desired.

  1. Three City Transformation    This is the original document that contemplated the project.
  2. Comparison Of14 Inner City Areas    This provided data on 14 inner city areas of America to put our potential neighborhoods in a national context.
  3. The Cost of Poverty in Overtown and in Dade County (January, 1995) This is the summary report for the Dade County effort to establish base data.
  4. The Cost Of Poverty in Sandtown-Winchester and in Baltimore City (January, 1995) This is the summary report for the Baltimore effort to establish base data.
I have an extensive database of census, economic, and fiscal data on which this work was based (all is 1990 data).

In Baltimore we did detailed plans on how we would achieve "neighborhood transformation". Funding received was less than we sought and results have been less than transformational. Jimmy Carter created The Atlanta Project that got a great deal more funding and neighborhood activity. I don't think, however, that is is proof that neighborhood transormation can work. The best example of neighborhood transformation working is probably Geoffrey Canada's Harlem Children's Zone and I am hoping to learn more about that when he comes to Liberty City on February 9, 2013.
