Community Mapping Locations
About This Map
Residents of Globeville, Elyria, and Swansea (GES) shared locations that help describe what it is like to live in GES. The map below represents the points residents marked in response to questions about areas of community pride, gathering, and concern, as well as where they go to buy groceries and access health care.
About Each Category
Activities with Kids/Families/Friends: We asked questions including "Where do you spend time with your kids, family, or friends?" and "Where do you go to do activities with your kids, families, and friends?" to understand where areas of gathering and activities are for GES residents.
Do Not Spend Time with Friends/Family/Kids: This question was directly asked to understand if there are areas that GES residents specifically avoid. The next step will be to characterize why these locations are avoided.
Community Pride: We asked "Where are locations of community pride?" to reflect points of strength.
Community Concerns: Residents were asked to mark and describe areas of concern. This was left open ended to avoid limiting responses. A 150 meter (about 500 foot) buffer was added around major roadways of concern. 150 meters is the generally accepted limit on where roadways have an impact on local pollutant concentrations.
Purchase Food: We asked residents where they go to buy food, specifically groceries.
Seek Medical Care: We asked questions including "Where do you go when you are sick to get medical care?" and "Where do you go to see a doctor?" Responses include routine, emergency, and specialized care locations.
