Alicia Garcia, who has recently completed her Masters of Urban and Regional Planning at VCU, recently started a write-up of her thesis and work on her blog:

Located in the East End of Richmond, VA, the neighborhood of Church Hill is a community that has drastically changed in the past fifteen years. Between the years of 2000 and 2010, the neighborhood saw a large increase in rental prices, an influx of white population and a decrease in poverty. This difference in rental and racial composition has happened in a spotty way. Some census tracts have seen drastic revitalization while some areas of Church Hill remain unchanged by rental prices and race.
