My apologies. Since you used an abstract concept for “gentrifying” in your prior comment I assumed it was understood that gentrification in rural areas is more often referred to as “urban sprawl”. Allow me to amend my prior response:
False. Nobody is interested in gentrifying in the sticks because the dictionary definition of of “gentrification” precludes such a thing from happening. The definition of gentrification refers to the “renovation and revival of deteriorated urban neighborhoods”. There are no urban neighborhoods in “small rural towns”.
