Opportunity Zones

Opportunity Zones

The Opportunity Zones program was established by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 to encourage long-term investments in low-income urban and rural communities nationwide. It provides a tax incentive for investors to re-invest their unrealized capital gains into Opportunity Funds.

I made a series of maps that focused on Census Tract data with both high-need and high-opportunity locations, factoring in metrics like unemployment and commercial land density. My team - along with extensive input from the public - provided recommendations for 25 Census Tracts to the Mayor, and then to the U.S. Treasury for certification. | Press Release | Online Map

Projects Along DC's Waterways

Projects Along DC's Waterways

The Fire and EMS Department wanted to assess real estate projects near DC's major waterways, so I used the "buffer" geoprocessing tool in ArcMap Desktop to create a layer for DC Government projects that fell within a 1/2 mile of the Anacostia and Potomac rivers. Utilizing the Common Owner polygon layer, I created the DMPED Real Estate polygons in ArcMap Desktop.
