As we’ve looked at the shifting landscape of the post-Recession Valley in our “New Neighbors” project, a lot of what we’ve heard has focused around the question of displacement. As prices go up, are people being pushed out? Are we sacrificing diversity in the name of development? In short, are we gentrifying?

To close the series, KJZZ’s Carrie Jung has brought together a group of experts and stakeholders for a roundtable discussion of some of these, issues including Deirdre Pfeiffer, associate professor of Urban Planning in ASU’s School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning; Terry Benelli, executive director of the LISC, Local Initiatives Support Corporation; and Eve Reyes-Aguirre, a longtime Garfield neighborhood resident.
