With the STOP Underage Drinking Act reintroduced at the national level, policy makers are in the midst of determining how to conquer the issues that arise out of underage drinking. The current project, in conjunction with the Alliance on Undeage Drinking (ALOUD), seeks to provide a picture of one such environment in which underage drinkers live. The current study focused its efforts on providing ALOUD with an environmental assessment of East Dallas. It provided information on alcohol outlets, community resources, schools, and alcohol advertising. The environmental assessment provides ALOUD with the data that it will need to determine which areas of local policy should be impacted in their efforts to lower the current levels of underage drinking in East Dallas through environmental means.
