Mary Pattillo, Professor of Sociology and African-American Studies at Northwestern University, discusses the on-the-ground limits and challenges of "mixed-income" housing policies as they relate to the topics of race, class, politics, planning, governance, and social interaction by presenting research on various mixed-income developments in Chicago. While noting the success stories and benefits, Pattillo highlights the risks of gentrification, displacement, and the "tyranny of the middle class" in such developments, and the role of public housing authorities in the business of building market-rate housing. Part of the Tuesday Speaker Series presented by HUD's Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity.

Now new footage has emerged revealing the harsh conditions under which civilians displaced in South Sudan's have endured for nearly two years now. The difficulties are compounded by ethnic rivalries that face members of different ethnic groupings seeking refuge at the UN protected camps. As Maria Galang reports, in one such camp the UN has had to form a police force to make sure that the rivalries do not degenerate to violence
The war on poverty has been lost, at least in its mission to increase self-sufficiency, primarily because the built environment was not designed for self-employment. From the earliest mill towns to today’s metropolis, cities are designed for wage employment with distinct employment and residential zones. Makerhoods.org was founded to reduce this barrier by constructing urban work/live and mixed use developments specifically designed for low to moderate income entrepreneurs. Coupled with a business development support system, a Makerhood community is structured to offer meaningful self-employment for an urban population with few alternate opportunities for work.

LSE London and Berkeley Homes have been working in collaboration to produce a report on creating new communities in London. This film looks at the report's main findings. We identified six characteristics of a new London village: 1) It’s small and intimate and can be comfortably covered on foot, 2) It’s unique, and has an identifiable centre with its own atmosphere and sense of place, 3) It’s designed for social interaction with plenty of public and green space, and places for community events, 4) It’s locally driven and locally responsive, and residents are involved in decisions, 5) It’s functional; well served by public transport and with good access to core services like a doctor’s surgery, food shops and schools, and 6) It’s mixed – the community has a mix of ages, backgrounds and tenu...
There are a few communities missing from this year’s reports, even though there are incentives to be involved.
Mixed Use. Mixed Income. Mixed up?

Health experts say that 30 minutes of walking a day is as important as an apple in "keeping the doctor away." Exercise can be life-enhancing even for those few among us who aren't overweight. How do we keep enticing and encouraging ourselves to get up and stay in shape? This episode of The Iowa Journal asks these questions to fitness consultant Tim Lane, of the Iowa Department of Public Health. The show also looks at how corporate incentives play roles in a healthy community. Mark Fenton, of the PBS program, "Keep America Walking" joins us to speak about planning our communities for health by building mixed purpose communities that encourage walking and biking. And, our attention turns to Ames, Iowa, where a "Walking School Bus" takes kids safely to and from their schools as part of a N...
Fairfax County is encouraging the development of walkable, mixed use communities as part of its strategic plan to boost the economy. Future new growth will be concentrated into areas near Metro stations and revitalization areas, like Reston or Tysons. Not only do these walkable, transit-accessible neighborhoods produce economic benefits, but also they help to protect existing suburban neighborhoods and manage traffic.
