The objective of this project is to develop a pilot Community Atlas website which presents quality-assured data and information concerning government services and community conditions in a format that the public can easily access and understand. This pilot is a multi-agency effort that includes Hillsborough County and the Children’s Board of Hillsborough County. As envisioned, the information will be presented by neighborhood along with detailed explanations of what agency provides the data or service, why it is important, and how citizens can contact the agency. Interactive on-line maps will further enhance the utility of the website by allowing citizens to view the location of important government and community services and compare an individual neighborhood with other neighborhoods in the County.
This is the "umbrella website" established for the Community Atlas program under development at the Florida Center for Community Design and Research. At present there is only one Community Atlas site. It was created for Hillsborough County and sponsored by the Children's Board of Hillsborough County.
