Gentrification is a hot topic in the City of Grand Rapids, thanks to the rapid changes to our neighborhoods and our skyline. But how do we ensure that Grand Rapids does not fall into the gentrification trap that has caused problems in so many cities all over the country? Our panel included Darel Ross II (LINC and Start Garden), Landon Bartley (City of Grand Rapids Planning Department), Dr. Benjamin Ofori-Amoah (WMU Geography Department) and David Allen (Grand Rapids City Commission). Join us for an enlightening discussion on gentrification, our city, and the way forward.
