Certainly planning for mixed-use, legislating to protect and allow various uses, and all the aforementioned things are valid.

However, I think at some level gentrification will inevitably move forward, and as people become dissatisfied with how posh the neighbourhood now is, new corners and neighbourhoods of each city will be found and revitalized.

The solution for me would to always try to be at the forefront of that wave working at new neighbourhood revitalization, preserve what can be preserved (especially lower-income housing as the neighbourhood gets wealthier) and mourn the loss of what's been lost while helping create something new.
