This case study explores the lessons learned about engaging communities around issues of opportunity. It begins with a background of the Langley Park neighborhood and previous planning efforts around the Purple Line. It describes the ways through which NCSG and CASA engaged residents in the story mapping process. It also details the process undertaken by the project team to create the story map. It concludes with lessons for other communities interested in employing story mapping to improve disadvantaged populations’ access to opportunity within their neighborhoods and across their metropolitan regions.
