MetroTrends week in review
Last week’s MetroTrends blogs took on three hot questions from the news:
- Can a distressed public housing project be transformed (cheaply) with an architectural makeover?
- Does the relocation of public housing residents increase crime in their destination neighborhoods?
- Did stimulus funding for public sector jobs work to strengthen the economy?
As an organization, the Urban Institute does not take positions on issues. Scholars are independent and empowered to share their evidence-based views and recommendations shaped by research.
