CURA's Neighborhood Leadership and Organizing and Community Viz staff have been collaborating with the Defend Glendale campaign to support the important organizing work led by community members at Glendale Townhomes in Minneapolis.
Glendale sits on land held in public trust and managed by the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority, and has become a potential candidate for sale to a private housing developer and tear-down redevelopment. While affordable units may continue be a part of a new housing development, that process would destroy the current community living there, displacing everyone living in the Townhomes' 184 units.
This infographic maps out some facts about Glendale and some of what residents would face if tear-down redevelopment were to happen.
