Research paper by Aadil Nathani (December 2019) for upper-year Windsor Law Municipal Law course.
This paper will define gentrification, then look at the impacts it has on issues of displacement, affordable housing, urban planning and the forgotten, often silenced, voice of marginalized people in community development. This will be an analysis of the impact of gentrification on marginalized communities and the role of the municipality in gentrification. Finally, the paper will analyze the tools that municipalities have at their disposal to make the revitalization process more accessible and reduce the harm caused by gentrification.
