City Visions: Urban Renewal - (not) Throwing out the Neighbor with the Neighborhood

May 16, 2012

 

Tonight on City Visions we’ll talk about the unintended effects of urban renewal in the Bay Area. San Francisco has been undertaking a huge effort to revitalize its most blighted neighborhoods. What are the effects of gentrification on lower-income residents? Is there a way to improve the neighborhood without sacrificing the neighbor? 

Guests:

Peter Cohen, Co-Director of the Counsel of Community Housing Organization 

Oscar Grande, Community Organizer with People Organized to Demand Environment/Economic Rights
