City Gentrifying, Diversifying

Charlottesville is becoming gentrified, Graham Moomaw writes in the Progress, surprising nobody. That’s based on an analysis of neighborhood-level census data done by the university’s Weldon Cooper Center. Between 2000 and 2010, home values doubled, with the sharpest climb in valuations coming in historically black neighborhoods. The black population dropped by 1,600 people (about three percentage points, to 19.4%), while the asian and hispanic populations grew. The white population dropped by half a percentage point, to 69.1%. On the other hand, the black population is growing the urban ring. Belmont and Venable are growing faster than any other neighborhoods.
