    Gentrification is a trend in urban neighborhoods, which results in increased property values and the displacing of lower-income families and small businesses. This is a common and widespread controversial topic in urban planning.

Inner-city residents are frequently referred to as a permanent underclass because they are trapped in an unending cycle of hardships such as: inadequate job skills, crimes, drugs, culture of poverty, homelessness, deteriorating housing, and lack of services.
