Actualizing Equity 2019: Why Density Isn’t Enough
The high-profile redevelopment of the 122-acre Ford site in St. Paul ignited a somewhat predictable debate about density in the Highland Park neighborhood and citywide. Opponents raised concerns about increased traffic and building heights, while many proponents asserted the environmental and transit benefits of density. Meanwhile, many advocates calleds for clear commitments to significant and deeply affordable housing units – something density can help support but does not deliver by itself.
Join us as we examine the organizing around the Ford Site and explore how we can center race equity and affordability — in addition to density — in housing development and land use decisions in our region.
