Neighbourhood renewal is a difficult process and perception is a big part of the battle

Curtis Olson wrote an excellent post called “It’s good in the hood,” on the Saskatoon Speaks blog. He talks about the renewal that’s occurring in the Riversdalearea and how the area is changing as new people move in.

This kind of renewal is hard and it takes a long time but new development in South Caswell Hill and at River Landing could certainly bring lots of positive change to the relatively small residential neighbourhood that enjoys a wonderful location along the edge of the river and the Central Business District. There certainly seems to be a committed group of thoughtful and progressive people leading the charge for change.

The discussion and debate that follows is particularly interesting. Clearly, fear is a major factor, at least for those who are outside looking in. Finding ways to address those fears would be a major step forward.
