The Watts Community Studio team recently finished the preliminary analysis of the 695 residential and 50 small business surveys that were completed this summer in Watts. Keeping in mind that this project aims to inform economic development and planning policy for Watts, we are very excited to present these findings to community stakeholders.
Today we debuted our findings and recommendations at a meeting of local stakeholders, held in the Council District 15 Watts field office. This upcoming Friday, November 1st, we are presenting our findings again to a meeting of community-based and faith-based organizations at the same location from 3:00pm – 4:30pm. The general public is able to attend, however, you must RSVP. Seating for the general public is first come, first serve. Refreshments and food will be provided.
Here’s a preview of some of the exciting things we learned this summer:
- 36% of small business owners in Watts have been in Watts for over 10 years!
- Residents ranked the top 3 neighborhood priorities as Employment, Physical Activities and Neighborhood Cleanliness
- Many residents believe that Watts is improving.
Can you guess what the labor force participation rate is for Watts? Come this Friday and find out!
