Description

Instead of JUST complaining about issues here, I thought it would be helpful to state an idea for a SOLUTION to area problems. Today I made some reply comments to the "prostitution on Ferry St" issue and somebody chose to flag them. For what I don't know yet. Maybe that person can explain the ball-less act here instead of just arbitrarily consoring next time because they don't agree:

New Haven/Fair Haven is the kind of place it is today, in part, due to 70-years of catering SOLELY to low-income residents. I would like to see some focusing in a different direction by city planners in order to bring the community up. There are steps that have to be taken to this end. I'm not a real estate expert and just beyond marketing Fair Haven to the target audience I wouldn't know how to accomplish it. I don't say this to exclude anybody - I don't care if those that move in are from Mars, we just need an influx of dollars (not just the government's either). Following is a definition of where it is, we, as a community, should go:

Gentrification and urban gentrification denote the socio-cultural changes in an area resulting from wealthier people buying housing property in a less prosperous community. Consequent to gentrification, the average income increases and average family size decreases in the community, which may result in the informal economic eviction of the lower-income residents, because of increased rents, house prices, and property taxes. This type of population change reduces industrial land use when it is redeveloped for commerce and housing. In addition, new businesses, catering to a more affluent base of consumers, tend to move into formerly blighted areas, further increasing the appeal to more affluent migrants and decreasing the accessibility to less wealthy natives.
