Somerville News: Gentrification concerns?

“This train could change your life”
“The expected positive effects of the extension include significant improvements to the city’s economy and environment. However, even some supporters of the extension say the new train stops could further the gentrification seen in the west side of the city, price out longtime residents and transform the city’s diverse neighborhoods into havens for only the very wealthy.”
Lots of comments too on this somewhat one-sided article.
