Re: St. Anthony Village

Community meeting update: developers have hilariously added a pathway between the sidewalk on Stinson Parkway and one of the buildings "fronting" the street, because this is the kind of thing you can do when you propose a 95 foot set-back from the sidewalk.

http://www.savmn.com/DocumentCenter/View/826 The group came back with a plan that is significantly worse. No street frontage to speak of. 51 affordable units vs 97 originally.
