During the Fall 2016 semester, FIU students collaborated with the South Florida Regional Planning Council to produce a multifaceted assessment of Liberty City’s economic development.
FIU’s Liberty City Economic Development and Urban Revitalization Project Presentations were held on Tuesday, November 29th at 6:30-8:30pm, at the Council office in Hollywood. The Council was pleased to partner with Florida International University’s Department of Public Administration to help guide class research projects for a graduate course on economic development. The students’ class projects, found below, are focused on Education; Business & Economy; Transportation & Amenities; Health & Quality of Life; Civic Engagement; and Housing & Land Use in Liberty City.
The students presented unique recommendations for community and economic revitalization based upon current data and academic research. The students used a range of tools to analyze and interpret relevant community indicators and conducted interviews with the community representatives. One of these tools is the Southeast Florida DataCommon.
