Abstract:     
This article examines the role of local government in the process of urban spatial restructuring (gentrification). In light of the disparate needs and competing interests of different racial and socioeconomic groups seeking a place in the city, there are limits to local government's ability to facilitate redevelopment projects that deliberately aim to accomplish class transformation and exclusively reconfigure the inner city for the affluent. These limits exist by virtue of implied obligations of the police power.
