GENTRIFICATION
Poly's definition

We can repair and rebuild our homes and businesses and welcome more middle class and affluent neighbors without displacing any of our residents regardless of social or economic perceptions if we work together to redefine gentrification for ourselves and reap the benefits.

Merium Webster:
The process of repairing and rebuilding homes and businesses in a deteriorating area (such as an urban neighborhood) accompanied by an influx of middle-class or affluent people and that often results in the displacement of earlier, usually poorer residents.
The term was coined by sociologist Ruth Glass, who is quoted below.
"One by one, many of the working class quarters of London have been invaded by the middle-classes—upper and lower. Shabby, modest mews and cottages—two rooms up and two down—have been taken over, when their leases have expired, and have become elegant, expensive residences .... Once this process of 'gentrification' starts in a district it goes on rapidly until all or most of the original working-class occupiers are displaced and the whole social character of the district is changed."
-Ruth Glass (1964)
