In the historic Westside neighborhood, “gentrification” has become a hotly contested word. From long-term residents to real estate developers, a neighborhood meeting shows there’s the pull between old and new, and a question of the right way to evolve a neighborhood.
This video is part of a larger project from Kansas City PBS and Flatland looking at gentrification, affordable housing, and evictions in the Kansas City metro. Follow the entire project at flatlandkc.org/publicworks, and with the hashtag #KCPublicWorks.
Kansas City PBS and its digital magazine, Flatland, are gathering in-depth reporting and engagement around affordable housing in the metro. Watch for resources, ways to get involved, and more reporting at our project main page, Public Works? A Level Foundation.
