Welcome to Neighborhood Intel by Dynamo Metrics !
Neighborhood Intel is a decision support tool created by Dynamo Metrics. This tool allows communities to monitor the impact of demolition and rehabilitation efforts, while easily identifying trouble spots so that targeted intervention strategies can be implemented.
Communities at the Crossroads: A Survey of Five First-Ring Suburbs examines housing market challenges and opportunities facing five of Cleveland's first-ring suburbs - Euclid, Garfield Heights, Maple Heights, South Euclid, and Warrensville Heights - in the wake of the foreclosure crisis.The report, released in January 2018, summarizes key findings from a property inventory and analysis conducted by Western Reserve Land Conservancy and Dynamo Metrics. The project was commissioned by the City of South Euclid and generously funded by the Cleveland Foundation. For the main project page and report click here.

The layer selector allows you to choose the map layers you want to see. Click on any checkbox to enable a layer. Once clicked, the legend for that layer will appear. Layers are ordered based on the order they are enabled. To bring a map layer to the top of others, uncheck and recheck the box next to the layer. To disable a layer, click the checkbox.
Dynamo's heat maps identify concentrations of property statuses nearby to each property. This is done by identifying properties within 500 feet of every property in the city. For example, the heat map on home ownership represents the percent of properties within 500 feet of a residential properties that are owner occupied.
Census layers are from the US Census Bureau American Community Survey for 2016. These layers show different socioeconomic, demographic and housing indicators within the city within Census Block Group geographic boundaries.
Parcel layers indicate the status and events that occur at each property in the city.
Survey Results: A parcel survey was performed using technology from Loveland Technologies where people were hired to visit every property in the city to take a picture and collect information on those properties using tablet computers. This layer represents the letter grade that the property structures were given to the property based on the visual survey of the exterior conditions of each property. Full details on other information collected during the survey are available by clicking on a parcel.
Time Series Layers: Any layer that has a * is a time series layer. These layers provide the ability to see changes over time. To activate the time element of these layers, the time slider on the bottom right of the map is used. When one of these layers is enabled, the layer will reflect the most current information and the slider will also represent that. To see the changes over time, slide the second slider to the left and hit play. If a specific start time is wanted, slide to that date and hit play. To make it go faster, slide the smaller first slider to the right until the desired speed is reached. Only one time series layer should be enabled at a time for optimal performance.
Demolition Impact: The Demolition Impact map layer details the impact each demolition had on surrounding properties. When a demolition is clicked, the parcel that was demolished is highlighted along with the area that was impacted.
Rehab Impact: The Rehab Impact map layer details the impact each rehab had on surrounding properties. When a rehab is clicked, the parcel that was rehabbed is highlighted along with the area that was impacted.
Submarket: As part of our prior research into the impact of demolitions and rehabilitation activity in Cleveland it was necessary to identify different submarkets within the Cleveland Area. Each submarket behaves differently in regards to the impact of demolition, rehabilitations and other market activities. For more information on how submarkets were identified, please visit rehabimpact.com.
