A friend of mine, who lived in Seattle for many years where she says this was common practice, believes that developers in Minneapolis should be asked to pay into a fund used for affordable housing and other housing related necessities and amenities as a cost of doing business. Would someone please educate me about what the city of Minneapolis asks of developers that are eliminating affordable rental units and/or building very expensive condos and lofts that only a small percentage of people looking for housing can afford? Thanks very much. Arthur T. Himmelman Loring Park REMINDERS: 1. Be civil! Please read the NEW RULES at http://www.e-democracy.org/rules.
