PANEL - Urban Regeneration & Mixed Income Housing: improving lives or creating divides?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session, a presentation and panel discussion, focuses on issues around urban regeneration at the local and global scale, in particular in low-income housing. Our panelists challenge some of the implicit assumptions about mixed income housing- not only in design, but in policy decisions.

This is a timely discussion in Seattle as economic pressures are rapidly gentrifying many of our neighborhoods, and displacing many people who currently reside in low-income housing. New housing developments in Seattle must include a certain percentage of affordable housing, but does mixed-income housing help improve the socio-economic status of low-income residents? Our panelists bring a range of perspectives, hailing from all the fields of design, urban planning, social justice, social work, affordable housing, and environmental psychology.
