Communities in Transition: tools to predict and respond to gentrification

Date: Wednesday, May 8th
Time: 7:30 - 10:00 a.m.
Location: DRCOG 1001 17th St. • Suite 700 • Denver, CO 80202

CM | 2

Rapid increases in rent and home prices, stagnant wages, changing consumer preferences, land use policies and public investments affect gentrification and displacement in cities throughout the United States. Far from an uncontrollable consequence of market forces, gentrification and displacement result from many economic, political and individual decisions.

Join us to learn about new models designed to understand how people, place and policy shape neighborhood change. CU Denver faculty will describe how publicly available data can be used to predict whether a neighborhood may be impacted by gentrification, establish early warning systems and assist in the development of prevention strategies.

This Imagine a Great Region and Metro Vision Idea Exchange event is co-hosted by CityCenter at CU-Denver and DRCOG.

7:30 – 8 a.m. Networking Breakfast
8 – 10 a.m. Metro Vision Idea Exchange

  • Presentations (60 mins)
  • Moderated Discussion with panelists (60 mins)

Researchers Carrie Makarewicz and Jeremy Németh will present their work on gentrification and displacement, particularly recent work that features strategies to identify potential displacement. Irene Aguilar and Deyanira Zavala will then present on efforts that local governments and community-supporting nonprofits have taken to address gentrification and displacement issues in Denver.
The panel discussion will offer attendees the opportunity to ask questions of the panelists and to respond to the presentations.
