More High Density Housing Grants in Golden Valley

Here is another public “investment” in Golden Valley;

The Metropolitan Council is providing $4 million to go toward brownfield investigation and cleanups in livable communities. The grants will help create jobs and housing opportunities as well as encourage additional public and private investment.

Public money does not create jobs or wealth. Private investment does that. Taxing and spending saps the private sector out of more money.

Met Council provided Golden Valley with a $92,400 grant for soil remediation at a site proposed to house a market-rate apartment complex, The Xenia, on nearly 6 acres on the northwest corner of Xenia Avenue and Golden Hills Drive.

And for what? Yes, yet again, more high density housing. Don’t you just love it Golden Valley??
