The questions of who loses and who finds community through mixed-income redevelopment are complicated ones. From the existing research we know that displacement from public housing, or displacement through other redevelopment initiatives to make way for mixed income housing, can compromise community-based social ties. But for which subgroups is it most salient? In the case of public housing transformation (HOPE VI) do the required community support services (CSS) help displaced residents establish new community ties? The other side of this is for original poor residents who remain in place – do they perceive being a part of the redeveloped community or do they stay in place and lose it while newcomers find it? This session explores these questions through a series of case studies of different cities during different time periods.
