Redevelopment Views

This morning the Washington Post covered a poll they took about views on redevelopment. There were just over 1,000 people polled by phone from November 12 – 15. While there was agreement among those polled that the D.C. government is not doing well on affordable housing and ending homelessness, there were differences across race and class about how redevelopment is viewed. Decreasing crime is positive for a community but as housing prices and taxes increase there is increased economic pressure that forces many residents to consider moving.

The article is worth reading and discussing with neighbors as Trinidad faces a similar situation with dramatic increases in housing prices and redevelopment pressures.
