A brief report and series of maps were created to show the advantage and disadvantage certain neighborhoods have in access to employment based on their proximity to light rail transit.  Neighborhoods on transit lines saw an increase in development and employment during the period from 2002-2008 while other areas of the city observed job low.  Results of this study were presented at the 2011 LED Partnership Workshop in Washington D.C. in March.
