Planning professionals aim to support development in their communities, but sometimes neighborhoods get swept up in the game. With several landscape-changing development projects in the queue, Rocky Mount is exploring how to balance development of modern amenities while protecting the identity of its core neighborhoods. This presentation will discuss a compilation of anti-gentrification strategies to preserve neighborhoods experiencing development pressure.
Participants will leave with a metaphorical toolkit for counteracting potentially gentrifying development. Presenters will review research that explores techniques by other municipalities and their application within the context of NC law. This session will be interactive in that the attendees will have the opportunity to work through a real-life case study featuring a Rocky Mount neighborhood while applying anti-gentrification planning strategies.
