Over the next 30 years, growing numbers of senior citizens and people of color will account for all of the metro’s population growth. The housing market will change accordingly. Applying respective demographic groups’ preferences to a demand analysis, Arthur C. Nelson finds the Twin Cities metro already has enough medium- and large-lot detached housing to meet year 2040 demand. Between 2020 and 2040, the growth market will be the development of attached and multifamily and small-lot detached homes in walkable, amenities-rich neighborhoods. Dr. Nelson will outline findings of this new analysis and discuss planning and policies to prepare for vastly changed needs and demand.</p> <p><strong>To RSVP for this event, visit&nbsp;<a href="http://www.cura.umn.edu/forum-signup">http://www.cura.umn.edu/forum-signup</a>.</strong></p> <p><strong><br /> Biographic Sketch</strong>:<br /> Arthur C.

In this section we identified organizations that have been critical to the local grassroots effort in the Twin Cities to mitigate the negative impacts of gentrification.</span></p> <p><span>For this CURA Housing Forum we have invited representatives from four of these organizations to share their experiences and knowledge including&nbsp;African Career, Education, and Resource (ACER);&nbsp;Frogtown Neighborhood Association (FNA);&nbsp;Inquilinxs Unidxs por Justicia; and&nbsp;West Side Community Organization (WSCO). The event will feature a moderated panel discussion and time for questions and answers from the audience.</span></p> <p><a href="http://gentrification.umn.edu/" target="_blank">Download a PDF of "The Diversity of Gentrification: Multiple Forms of Gentrification in Minneapolis and St. Paul."</a></p> <div class="item-list"><p><strong>CURA Programs:</strong></p><ul class="vocabulary-list"><li class="first last"><a href="/taxonomy/term/23">CURA Housing Forum</a></li> </ul></div> Tue, 05 Feb 2019 19:45:54 +0000 jmiller 8149 at http://www.cura.advantagelabs.com Neighborhoods Now!
