UPD Faculty present at the 2017 Community Development Workshop

Faculty from Urban Planning and Design participated in the 5th Annual Community Development Workshop in Kansas City.

The workshop was well-attended by community members, city staff, students and local professionals in community development and planning.

This year the Center for Neighborhoods was a sponsor and participant in the event.

Dr. Michael Frisch, Dr. Clara Irazabal-Zurita, Dr. annalise fonza, and Jacob Wagner all participated in an event focused on developing a shared understanding of gentrification. The session was very well-attended and participants worked in groups to generate mutual knowledge about the different definitions of gentrification as well as the implications of this controversial concept.
