Beyond Gentrification: Elevating the Dialogue around Neighborhood Change (NONMEMBERS)

In a city long characterized by fault lines between rich and poor, charges of "gentrification" have renewed political currency and ultimately power to stall large development projects in their tracks. Conventional developer concessions and "stakeholder outreach" processes no longer cut it; a more robust set of tools are needed to convince skeptical and wary residents that new development is a net positive and to respond to legitimate concerns over neighborhood change. This month we will showcase some of those innovative approaches and explore how to reframe the debate around gentrification both as an economic and social phenomenon.
