Additionally, the mayor said the city wants to build at least one 35-unit senior housing project in every ward over the next 15 years, to serve the growing elderly population.

On development, Rybak said the city needs to accommodate new residents without “disturbing the single-family character of our neighborhoods.”

“We’re not going to tear down a bunch of single family homes,” he said. “We’re not going to build towers in the middle of residential neighborhoods. We’re going to grow it along transit corridors. We’re going to make it possible to live in this city without a car.”
