Welcome to Tackling Commercial Gentrification!
This website was created as a tool to help community members, public servants, business owners, and nonprofits understand how gentrification can have a negative effect on locally owned businesses, and what can be done to help. We hope that you find the information here interesting, helpful, and useful. Click on the links in the navigation pane to learn more!
This site was created by graduate students from the University of Washington’s course on Community Economic Development, taught by Dr. Joaquín Herranz Jr. of the Evans School of Public Policy and Governance. The information here was compiled by many individuals over several years through research, interviews, and class discussions and presentations. Many thanks to all who contributed their time and effort.
