An Analysis Of The Relationship Between Equity Choice Preferences, Service Type and Decision Making Groups In A U.S. City Academic Article uri icon


  • This study examines perceptions of what constitutes equitable allocation of publicly provided resources for recreation and park services in Austin, Texas. Three groups containing about 800 individuals (residents, park and recreation department employees, and city council members) were surveyed to determine if equity preferences differed between these three groups and between seven recreation and park services studied. Based upon these findings, suggestions are made on how to improve the policy making and master planning processes for recreation and parks. -from Authors
