An open letter to elected officials, urban planners and developers for Star Tribune–

More density is not humane. Please explain why bigger is better.

As a 67-year-old, white, retired university professor, I write in the name of the common humanity of all Minneapolis residents. I moved here more than 30 years ago from New York City to become a professor. I chose Minneapolis because it was an affordable and livable city. Today, it is no longer affordable and less livable than ever. As a former chair of the Minneapolis Commission on Civil Rights, I believe that we, as residents, need to always voice our concerns about the future of our city.
