    First of all, ask the wealthier cities to do their fair share of affordable housing. You look at the city of EDINA and how they deal with affordable housing...They have not even suggested to build one unit within their school system. Not one section 42 work force housing unit. They have the abundance of the entry level jobs in the south metro. They have transit but yet They will not build one SECTION 42 housing unit in EDINA school district. Housing opportunities should be free from illegal housing discrimination and exclusionary zoning or other exclusionary policies.  Housing opportunities that promote racially and economically integrated neighborhoods.

Second of all, Stop requiring cities like Richfield to concentrate poverty. By your own standards you identified concentrated poverty in Richfield but you continue require the city of Richfield to build section 42 units. Richfield already has well over 54% affordable housing units and a POVERTY HOUSING BAND on your data map. Here are the links.

I have sent Richfield City council, Edina City council and Richfield city manager, this note Thank You, Barry LeBlanc 7521 Pillsbury Ave South Richfield MN 55423
