Upper Harbor dissent reflects many serious concerns about development

"The city's Collaborative Planning Committee (CPC), which consists of residents appointed by the Minneapolis mayor and council, has been in the center of widespread disagreement about whether and how the large-scale redevelopment project will serve Northside residents' interests."

"People not following the issue closely might be tempted to dismiss these developments as "just another community process" dustup that only affects a few people — but they would be wrong.

"Community members are continuing to raise serious questions about aspects of the development such as displacement, economic development, wealth creation, affordability, the sale of public land, and the use of state subsidies for privately-driven development. We share these questions and concerns about this once-in-a-generation development."
