January 2016

ULI-logo-1On January 27th and 28th, Michele Vives served as a panelist for the ULI Technical Assistance Panel to explore transit and community-oriented development options in the Mid-City communities of San Diego.  The day and a half panel workshop focused on the feasibility of transit-oriented development (TOD) at specific locations and identified potential designs as well as practical funding and implementation strategies that successfully advance development projects, creating livable corridors for current residents and visitors of City Heights.

The panels proposed development strategies, considered the potentially negative impacts of development in low-income communities – namely gentrification and displacement – and suggested creative ways to mitigate these threats. The panel came up with strategies to help overcome the loss of redevelopment funds and develop new opportunities for TOD in the Mid-City communities.
