On March 15, 2011, UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs Department of Social Welfare students traveled to Long Beach to deliver the findings of a four month assessment project tasked with analyzing how collaboration and community can work together to build a strong and vibrant MacArthur Park/Whittier School Neighborhood.
As part of the assessment project, students partnered with the City of Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services Weed & Seed Program and United Cambodian Community leaders to walk door-to-door and survey more than 165 residents and businesses in the MacArthur Park community. Following the door-to-door survey, students analyzed the findings, reviewed relevant literature and ultimately produced extensive data and maps that looked at issues of safety, access to healthy food, walkability and mobility.
