This project partners with the Globeville, Elyria-Swansea and Cole neighborhoods in Denver, Colorado to understand and address the disruption caused by the Central 70 highway reconstruction project and related neighborhood redevelopment.
Our National Science Funded project will equip and train community members to use personal environmental sensors to monitor air and noise pollution and design a set of smartphone apps where they can report their their daily experiences related to construction and pollution
Please consider getting involved [with link to get involved page]. We are currently recruiting neighborhood residents to participate in focus groups and to help us test our smartphone application.
The data reported through these technologies will allow us to:
understand how community members are affected by planned environmental disruptions,
address negative impacts of future planned disruptions, and
connect policymakers to data generated by citizens within
The data will be available and shared back to community organizations and residents engaged as community scientists throughout the study.
