FROM THE SURVEY:
There were no direct comments related to this topic in the survey data.
FROM THE DIALOGUES:
- There were very few comments made at the community dialogues about racial concentrations of poverty.
- Some Black dialogue participants noted that when they moved to certain neighborhoods, their white neighbors moved. This caused them to feel unwelcome in certain areas of town.
- Discussion also centered around the fact that the areas of high poverty concentration occur because individuals cannot afford housing in other neighborhoods of the city so they are forced to live in one concentrated area where the housing is affordable to them.
