Grand Avenue Residents May Face Gentrification In Evolving Phoenix

As Phoenix continues to grow, some districts with long held identities are being forced to change, for better or worse.

Consider Grand Avenue, a home to artists and small business owners that some believe is going through a period of gentrification.

Some residents there look at the changes that have reshaped the Roosevelt Row arts district in recent years and wonder if the same will happen to them, but not everyone agrees that Grand Avenue is on the verge of evolution. It’s also not the only area that has faced these changes in the Phoenix metro area.

Joining The Show to talk about what this means is Lynn Trimble, who has written about Grand Avenue for Phoenix New Times.
