11/13/18: Hearing on Gentrification & Displacement in Roxbury
Anyone want to attend this meeting tonight instead of meeting at ImpactHubBOS to debrief #NARinBos18? Eager to use this public hearing on gentrification & displacement in Roxbury to learn more about what impact investors, particularly #SpeculatorsWithoutBorders, are having on renters & would be homebuyers in Boston.
From my perspective, a prediction by Inman News that iBuyers would represent 20% of home purchased in 2019 overshadowed other news. If gentrification and displacement are already at crisis levels, how will ordinary people compete when investors can turn listing presentations into CASH offers?
Attending with another person who wants to prototype a "people's alternative" to iBuyers and eager to exchange ideas with others.
Today at 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Bruce C. Bolling Municipal Building
2300 Washington St, Roxbury, Massachusetts 02119
Hosted by City Councilor Kim Janey
