City presents talk by local gentrification researchers
Tuesday, October 2, 2018 by Katy McElroy
The next event in the Imagine Austin Speaker Series, which aims to promote education and provoke dialogue about the city’s comprehensive plan, is coming up soon. Dr. Elizabeth Mueller, associate professor of Community and Regional Planning, and Heather Way, clinical professor at the School of Law at the University of Texas at Austin, will be sharing their report, Uprooted: Residential Displacement in Austin’s Gentrifying Neighborhoods and What Can Be Done About It, the result of a yearlong study that looks at where gentrification is taking place in the city, what strategies in Austin and other cities have been productive in combating displacement, and ideas for how Austin can move forward. The talk will take place at the Mexican American Cultural Center on Wednesday, Oct. 10, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Those who are interested can view the report and its maps online beforehand at sites.utexas.edu/gentrificationproject.
