New Race & Regionalism Report: Intentional Exclusion

The City of Arden Hills is building a new neighborhood on 427 acres of publicly owned land but it refuses to include affordable housing opportunities for everyone to live there.

In this Race & Regionalism report we examine this massive tract of undeveloped land as a case study for how and why cities like Arden Hills must ensure that new developments — particularly those subsidized by taxpayer dollars — do not continue the disturbing legacy of intentional exclusion of low-wealth families from their communities and instead actively provide housing options that meet the real affordability needs of the region.
