This study was conducted by a team of student researchers at Wesleyan University on behalf of the North End Action Team (NEAT), a grassroots community organization based in the North End neighborhood of Middletown, CT. The purpose of the study was to gather information from North End residents regarding what type of open and/or recreational space they would like to see in their neighborhood.
