The Newhallville and Dixwell Neighborhood Community Index is a project of neighborhood residents and youth, with support from Inspired Communities Inc and DataHaven staff. Part One includes data and Part Two includes a photovoice project.
The Newhallville and Dixwell Neighborhood Community Index was born of a desire from neighborhood leaders to create a resource for residents to leverage while seeking grants or other tools for neighborhood development. This report aims to fulfill that desire by providing a review of aspects impacting quality of life in Newhallville and Dixwell while offering relevant historical context. Another desire for this report was to highlight the experiences and voices of neighborhood youth. The Newhallville Youth Photovoice Project was conducted in the summer of 2019 and the results are the focus of the second section of this document beginning on page 34.
