The Bronx Museum of the Arts takes on Housing

I just found out from Joan Byron of the Pratt Center in Brooklyn that the Bronx Museum of the Arts is hosting a forum this Saturday (April 14) on Understanding Housing Policies in the Bronx. Joan will be a panelist and will be quoting heavily from UNHP's Shrinking Affordability Report. The event will be at the Museum (1040 Grand Concourse @ 165th Street) from 2-4pm. Here's their blurb:

New residential and commercial construction has been bringing change to neighborhoods along the lower Grand Concourse for the past decade and the pace seems to be increasing. Now is a crucial time for community leaders and residents in the South Bronx to understand the forces that are propelling these changes on their streets.

Panelists will offer answers to these important questions:

  • Do current housing policies lead or impede?
  • Whose neighborhood is it anyway?
  • Is the history of “downtown” change repeating here?
  • Are truly diverse communities attainable?

This timely discussion will feature knowledgeable panelists:

  • Moderator: Allison Jaffe, Community Board 2 Housing & Land Use Committee
  • Joan Byron, Pratt Center for Community Development
  • Eduardo LaGuerre, Neighborhood Association for Inter-Cultural Affairs
  • Linda Cunningham, Bronx Bricks
  • Followed by audience participation.

If you are part of the neighborhood, be part of the process.

Sounds like it will be interesting. It's also free and open to the public.
