Fully Developed Suburbs Forum

When: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Where: Room 25
More Info: On the Metropolitan Council's New Housing Plan, proposed amendments to the Minnesota Desegregation Rule, and efforts to better coordinate fair housing and school integration among cities and school districts.

The Institute on Metropolitan Opportunity at the University of Minnesota Law School invite you to a listening session for fully developed cities and school districts to comment upon the Metropolitan Council new housing plans (including the Fair Housing Equity Assessment and Regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice) and proposed amendments to the State Desegregation Rule.

The Met Council has embarked on a new housing plan for the first time in decades. Many school districts and advocacy groups have proposed changes to the Desegregation Rule, see Minn. Rule 3535. This listening session will create an opportunity for fully developed suburbs and fully developed school districts, the type of metropolitan communities with the largest populations, to outline their concerns in the development of these policies to state and federal level decision-makers.

Too often these regional housing and school policies are developed without the input of fully developed suburbs or fully developed school districts. Moreover, housing policies strongly affect school districts and school integration policies strongly affect cities. Yet, too often housing policies are developed with only the input of cities and school district integration policies with only the input of school districts. This forum will allow cities to comment on integration plans and school districts to comment on housing proposals. It is the forum organizers’ hope that fully developed cities and school districts can work together better on these issues and that housing and school policies can complement, rather than conflict, with one another.
