Collaboration with Center for Urban Pedagogy 

This project outlines data research and data visualization of voting patterns of various Uniform Land Use Review Procedures (ULURP) cases. As part of a "What is ULURP?" toolkit, our goal was to make the ULURP process and voting results accessible so that communities and organizers could understand their points of entry and parameters for effectively participating in the political process. 

 

Process & Outcomes

The process required a team of five researchers, including myself, to review 339 ULURP cases from 2008-2013, indicating at each stage of the process what the voting outcomes were. The aggregate of the data was used to surface common themes, and demonstrate where a community might be most effective in sharing concerns and/or proposing suggestions.
