IHPSD Investigative: Urban Planning in Barrio Logan

Urban planning in Barrio Logan has historically been a complex matter involving the maritime industry, community residents, politicians, and the homeless. With gentrification of this neighborhood on the rise, community members are forced to grapple with issues such as cultural and physical displacement, the decreasing availability of affordable housing and food, a lack of green infrastructure, and proximity to pollutant heavy auto shops and industry. Our team has investigated the intersection of these issues and the community experiences surrounding them below.
