In a changing real estate market, how can we ensure stability in the neighborhood and prevent displacement? Can market pressures be leveraged to realize community goals? How does it all work?
We will discuss how benefits including open space, new streets and sidewalks, and affordable housing can be created through the development process. Market consultants will share the findings of their analysis of Glover’s Corner. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a hands-on activity to review how existing housing is preserved, and how new affordable and market rate housing gets built.
A follow-up deep dive session will be held on September 24, 2018 at 6:00 PM, at DotHouse Health at 1353 Dorchester Avenue. This additional public meeting is geared to those interested in a more detailed look at the numbers and assumptions used in the consultant analysis.
Refreshments from a local business will be provided. Interpretation and translated materials will be provided in Vietnamese and Cape Verdean Creole.
