FROM THIS EPISODE

Sometimes new stores, restaurants and cultural attractions are welcomed by everyone. But as many working-class areas in Los Angeles gentrify and housing costs rise, more developments are facing a backlash. What signals to long-time residents that improvements are for them and not for wealthier outsiders? Can a neighborhood’s quality of life improve without leading to displacement of the very people who have worked hardest and waited longest for the changes?

There Goes the Neighborhood's Saul Gonzalez hosts this live panel discussion about whether investment in neighborhoods like West Adams, Elysian Valley and Boyle Heights can benefit long-time residents and newcomers alike. 

Guests:
Joe Buscaino, Los Angeles City councilman, @JoeBuscaino
Manuel Pastor, University of Southern California, @Prof_MPastor
Regina Freer, Occidental College
Mott Smith, Civic Enterprise, @CivicEnterprise
Mike Voss, Co-Founder of Frogtown Brewery.
