MoreU Park Getting the Attention It Deserves?
From the State Legislature
From the Daily:
State Rep. Alice Hausman , DFL-St. Paul , said she sometimes disagrees with how the University spends its money, noting when she saw the school pushed harder for an on-campus stadium than it did for biomedical research facilities.
Recent talks about plans for UMore Park have also raised red flags, she said.
"To use this time to invest in some sort of cutting-edge conjecture about where residential communities might go strikes me as a stretch for a university," Hausman said, pointing out current economic and businesses struggles as other reasons to be wary.
She plans to meet with other state legislators on the topic this week, she said.
