The Greater Hazelwood Community Collaborative (GHCC) is an organization of organizations that works collectively to align resources to achieve economic, social and physical outcomes for all Greater Hazelwood community residents and stakeholders.
In 2013, the GHCC contracted Jackson/Clark Partners to perform a community-wide census. Data gathered assessed residents’ points of pride and areas of concern with respect to the array of changes underway in Greater Hazelwood.
The census data consists of several groups of respondents:
- About 800 residents responded to a basic set of questions about general aspects of life in the neighborhood, such as overall satisfaction with life in Hazelwood and the appearance and condition of homes.
- About 400 of the total respondents answered an extended set of questions concerning more specific dimensions of life in the community such as priorities for revitalization projects and the professional skills and civic interests that each respondent brings to the community development process.
Target audience for census data
Many individuals and organizations collaborate to collectively address the interests and needs of Greater Hazelwood residents. Specifically, the following groups could benefit for the census data:
