North Hennepin Community College is interested in developing a portion of their land to support privately owned affordable housing, particularly for students of the college. Students in Jennifer Blevins’s Advanced Community Practice: Assessment, Organizing, and Advocacy class administered surveys to community members living in the adjacent neighborhoods to better understand their attitudes towards the project. Most residents were supportive of the proposed development and identified price as a primary focus of the development. The students’ final report and presentation are available.
