While local planners know about issues in their communities to some extent, many jurisdictions lack the capacity to collect and analyze extensive data to systematically evaluate the needs of various parts of their communities. This project intends to fill this gap by providing a baseline description of the types of changes taking place in different suburban neighborhoods.  
Understanding changes taking place within communities helps inform regional policies and have a proactive approach to future planning challenges or planning opportunities, rather than being reactive to community needs. It also provides opportunities for local communities to learn from each other as they plan for the future of neighborhoods experiencing similar types of change.
The analysis reveals five characteristics that are used in clustering neighborhoods and shows that, in different combinations, changes in these variables produce seven distinct types of neighborhood change._
