A formal invitation to talk about gentrification
Wednesday, February 14, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano
Gentrification and displacement continue to dominate political talk in Austin. This month, the city is offering an official chance to weigh in on the topics at a community forum held by the city of Austin’s Anti-Displacement Task Force. The task force, which was formed by City Council in order to take a closer look at displacement in the city, is looking for public feedback on things like affordable housing and preserving cultural assets. The forum will take place on Saturday, Feb. 24 at the Conley-Guerrero Senior Activity Center, 808 Nile St., from 1 to 4 p.m. More information, and the opportunity to RSVP, is on Facebook or can be obtained by emailing the Neighborhood Housing and Community Development Department at NHCD@austintexas.gov. Linguistic and hearing impaired translation services, child care and refreshments will be available.
