Movin' Out: Crime Displacement from Public Housing Redevelopment Projects

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study considers the impacts of redevelopment of public housing under HUD’s HOPE VI program—aimed at redeveloping severely distressed public housing—on levels of neighborhood crime. The work investigates whether crime is displaced to nearby areas or areas absorbing relocated residents while the target sites undergo redevelopment. This research considered displacement of various types of crime, including violent crime and narcotics offenses, in four sites in Milwaukee, WI and Washington, D.C. The research employed three methods, a Weighted Displacement Quotient, point pattern analysis, and structural break analysis, to investigate levels of crime displacement experienced locally throughout each site's redevelopment period. Findings indicate an initial level of displacement from some sites that diminishes over time, especially as residents are moved back into the redeveloped site. The research also found that displacement was significantly affected by the timeline of redevelopment (e.g., how quickly the site is redeveloped and residents moved back in) and the strategies undertaken for relocation of residents during the redevelopment phase. Finally, the research underscored the importance of considering the movement of crime from distressed public housing in any large scale public housing redevelopment plans such as is funded under the HOPE VI effort.
