NEW REPORT RECOMMENDS STRATEGIES TO MITIGATE GENTRIFICATION

A new report by the Urban Institute provides case studies on how six cities, including Atlanta, Georgia, have attempted to lessen the pressures on neighborhoods being affected by gentrification. The case study neighborhoods range from those in the beginning stages of gentrification to those where gentrification has advanced to the point where little affordable housing remains. Strategies detailed in the report for avoiding the displacement of residents include producing affordable housing, retaining existing affordable housing, and asset-building among neighborhood residents.
