Community Change in East Austin is a two-part report prepared for PeopleFund, a federally certified community development financial institution in East Austin, by the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin.
Part I focuses on demographic, housing, and economic changes in East Austin. Because of different data sources used by the research team, the demographics chapter focuses on the years 1980 to 2000, the housing chapter focuses on the years 1990 to 2006, and the economics chapter focuses on the years 1998 to 2004. The intent of Part I was to assess how and why East Austin is changing.
Part II focuses on East Austin?s current business environment. Researchers interviewed more than 90 business owners in East Austin and analyzed businesses by industry and corridor. The intent was to understand why these businesses locate where they locate, solicit business owners? perceptions of the East Austin business environment, and explore East Austin?s prospects for future growth.
