Too often investments in poor neighborhoods have meant displacement for poor residents. New approaches are needed for transforming neighborhoods of concentrated poverty that do not presume the demolition and replacement of existing housing.

The panel will consider how the most successful ideas around strengthening the sustainability, character and diversity of neighborhoods can be applied to improve the nation's most challenged communities for the benefit of those living there. Discussion will focus on ways that improved urban design and imaginative financing and management practices can offer alternative approaches to troubled public housing developments and other poor neighborhoods, and create vibrant mixed income buildings and communities that include current residents.
