Affording Housing Project Drawing Opposition in St. Paul

The housing project would be built along a narrow and busy stretch of West 7th Street. Many nearby residents say the 44-unit affordable housing development is too big on too small a plot of land.

Opponents say that a city ordinance requires a project like this to be built on at least two acres and the plot of land being proposed is 1.5 acres.
