Portland's North and Northeast neighborhoods have seen significant investments, steep increases in housing prices, and changes in demographic and economic profile of residents. Many low-income residents and small businesses have been displaced. The key distinction between revitalization and gentrification is the negative consequence of involuntary residential displacement.

This study can serve as the basis for understanding and developing a policy strategy to address gentrification. It provides strategic guidance to better understand gentrification and its effects; to assess the risk of gentrification for different neighborhoods; and to identify best practices that are appropriate for addressing gentrification and displacement in Portland.
