How do you improve the overall community without driving out current residents?

We recognize that gentrification is a complex problem facing many American cities are facing, which means there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. But our priority is restoring the strength of these vital historic neighborhoods, which means not displacing current residents.

In response to that, we’ve formed a community retention task force made up of policy, real estate, and community engagement experts who will examine and propose policy solutions unique to conditions on the Westside. This group will collaborate closely with leaders already in the community – through Neighborhood Associations and Neighborhood Planning Units – to determine the necessary steps to manage revitalization and growth.
