If the neighborhoods have been run down for decades, but it suddenly gets cleaner, more job additions, and reduced crime in a handful of years thanks to outside money perhaps the locals should piss off and find a dirty gutter they are more comfortable living in.
I have personally seen this improvements along the Florida avenue corridor from Sligh & FL up to MLK & FL. Seminole and Tampa heights have benefitted a great deal from these kinds of improvements. Both Central Park and west boulevard homes were absolutely # housing projects rife with drugs, prostitution and other criminal activity that are now gone and soon be replaced with similar development projects to continue bringing the downtown area to a thriving full service community, instead of the void of entitlement tax leeches that existed prior draining the counties coffers with high density rent subsidies and extra heavy policing.
Of course our county has pulled off alot of this on it's own, but hopefully this executive action could still be of benefit to get rid of Robles park, the last housing projects left standing in Tampa. None of these places Even had Central ac, and the friends I went to school with always used to complain about living in the # holes.
Former residents get first dibs to move back in the new neighborhoods anyways, but most never do. They toss that chapter of their lives to history and enjoy being pulled out of the bad memories associated with those locations.
Watch these areas Trump's promising to revamp improve, but neighboring areas nosedive sharply. Because nobody had the brains to think "hey, all we're doing is pricing the residents out with these jacked up property values and rents, and shoving it under the rug next town over..."
