Urban Perform

Fall 2014

Our team was asked to define a region called a "fitness desert", identify the areas in Atlanta that met that criteria, and show the relationships between "fitness deserts", "food deserts", and other demographic information. Using food deserts as a template for our model of identification, we located low income areas that have low access to surrounding fitness facilities. We found that there are certain food deserts that intersect with our identified fitness deserts, and identified new areas in Atlanta where the kind of community intervention that Urban Perform does is possible.
