The Story.

Innovator(s)

Our internship was through the Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault or MOCSA for short. We were tasked with analyzing and providing suggestions to a neighborhood to improve their overall safety and community through environmental design. We used a program called CPTED to analyze possible risk factors that could increase the amount of violence in the area. We chose the Midtown Westport neighborhood because of their large commercial areas that bring in visitors from all over the world and their low rank in the FBI’s safety reports for Kansas City’s safe neighborhoods. We were able to come up with four suggestions to make residents and visitors feel safer while enjoying the variety of shops and bars that Westport has to offer.
