In cities across the country, including Los Angeles, Chicago, and San Francisco, Latino communities are undergoing gentrification. Gentrification is often times driven by policies focused on smart growth, infill and transit-oriented development, and densification as well as other planning approaches intended to encourage rehabilitation, walkability, and more livable neighborhoods. These redevelopment tools often result in increased property values but at the expense of the subsequent involuntary displacement of low income residents and businesses.
As an organization-wide initiative, Planning Home aims to reshape the narrative and focus on the innovative approaches addressing the national housing crisis. Affordability isn't the only issue Latino neighborhoods face. There are other issues such as displacement, access to resources, community disintegration and other impacts that are upheaving the Latino Home.
- Attendees will learn about how Latino planners can develop strategies, policies, plans, and development to enhance, preserve, and protect Latino neighborhoods through municipal zoning codes and participatory planning processes.
- They will learn about some of the nation's top cases of gentrification — Humboldt Park in Chicago, and the Mission District in San Francisco — and be informed about a range of planning tools used in these communities.
- An extended question-and-answer period at the close of the session will provide attendees with an opportunity to engage panelists in an in-depth dialog about these challenges and possible solutions.
