APC 21-1 3/15/2021 4:02 PMMichael Shannon For Please do not deny this site plan. I am a St. Paul resident, and concerned citizen. If the council objects to this project on the grounds of affordability, future bike route plans, or anything else that is not related to the site plan review, then the council needs to make those requirements into law. While I am in general in support of more housing, market rate or otherwise, I am absolutely against making building even harder in this city arbitrarily. If any kind of application for building meets all requirements (which are considerable), the city has no business denying it. With regard to this project specifically, we have an empty lot, that's been empty for over a decade, in an underinvested community, in a city that is in the midst of a housing crisis. The immediate neighbors are justified in being concerned about affordability, but leaving this site empty is not going to help on that front. +1
