Percent of population that is within the target distance (library or community center | park | trail or bikeway)
Livability | Desired Measure Result: Increase
Proximity to libraries and community centers is based on a 1.5 mile target, while proximity to parks and trails or bikeways is based on a .5 mile target. This measure allows the city to determine what percentage of the population lives within an acceptable distance of city amenities, and provides city planners with the data they need to determine the most effective positioning of new libraries, community centers, trails, bikeways and parks. As a measure, the proportion of the population within the target proximity to city amenities indicates ease of access to places of play, fitness, and learning for the residents of Fort Worth.
