    Infrastructure Design with Equity in Mind: Tools for Scoring and Mapping

    Our aim is to create an Equity Infrastructure Scorecard that aids in mapping concentrations of (in)equitable infrastructure across the city. This mapping is the first step in transforming every city engineering project into a more equitable system of support for all Angelenos. Beginning with a pilot project for three select systems the aim is to develop a process that helps agencies 1) understand and analyze existing infrastructural conditions, 2) identify gaps and needs, 3) direct resources, and 4) equalize access and distribution.
