In the past weeks, our community has had many conversations around teardowns in the neighborhood. These conversations highlight a problem that communities throughout the metro area are struggling to address: a property is quietly bought, approved for demolition, and replaced with ill-fitting new construction, all without any notice to surrounding neighbors or community groups.
The Macalester-Groveland Community Council (MGCC) has been working to proactively address neighborhood concerns about the increasing pace of home teardowns and new construction in Macalester-Groveland.
