The Druid Hills neighborhood in Charlotte, North Carolina, is located in the wedge between the Graham Street and Statesville Avenue corridors. This historic neighborhood is facing the potential challenge of gentrification and affordable housing loss. Plans for new mixed-income developments promise prosperity for the area, but also threaten to displace existing residents. Meanwhile, community leaders have leveraged resources to support local initiatives in food security and historical preservation as a mechanism for strengthening the community and finding ways to keep the neighborhood intact.
