To preserve, create and maintain a sustainable, economically competitive, and equitable bi-state region.
The sustainability indicators below are used to track how well the Knowledge Corridor Region is doing in achieving sustainability goals established through the HUD Sustainable Communities Initiative. Addressing sustainability through the lens of economic, environmental, and social goals, these indicators provide a snapshot into the success of the Knowledge Corridor from the broad regional level down to a town by town analysis. The indicators associated with each goal can be accessed in greater depth by clicking on the plus sign to the right of the goal title. The gauges that appear for each indicator show how the region is doing as a whole. To further explore each indicator click “explore more.” Showing historic trends for each indicator, the line charts display data for the city environments (“urban core”) of Hartford and New Britain in Connecticut and Holyoke and Springfield in Massachusetts. At the local level, the bubble charts provide data on each indicator for each town in the Knowledge Corridor.
We hope you find these tools to be useful and educational as we continue with this process. Indicators will be fully updated on an annual basis and smaller updates will be made as data becomes available.
