Gentrification is a process. Many would like to say that a little 'sprucing up' of a neighbourhood is good, but not too much. In in reality that's not very likely. Places like Yorkville, or Georgetown (in DC) or SoHo (in NYC) are examples. It is possible to mandate mixed housing types and protect housing stock, and it's important to protect the vulnerable (especially when it comes to issues like displacement of housing), but ultimately a city is about providing choices to those that make it up, and it is the built form that results from the choices made by those that live in it. The city itself is a process, and I think that's a good thing.
