Every urban transformation venture tells two stories. One story features economic development and beautification and another features displacement and exclusion. One community prospers while another is dispossessed. The panel focuses on several contiguous inner city Black Miami neighborhoods that underwent a major transformation – physically and demographically – over the past 50 years. Education, policing, arts will be explored as areas where policy had disparate results on the original residents and on future residents. In each of these areas the role of public administrators, as policy makers and as street level bureaucrats will be explored specifically 1) detailing the type of transformation that took place over the last half century, 2) exploring the specific role of administrators and policy makers in the transformation, 3) addressing the disparity in impact of these policies from one community to another, and 4) recommending a future direction for policy makers and administrators.
