“Who is my neighbor?” As a Salt Lake resident, that is the question I am asking myself after attending the Aloha Stadium Master Plan Community Workshop.

My neighbor is someone whose needs I put before my wants. I see an opportunity to do that in the stadium redevelopment by advocating for as much transit-oriented affordable housing as this site will physically allow.

Let us, as a community, welcome housing in this plan. Let us not think of our neighbors as only those we live close to us but as all who are burdened by the lack of affordable housing on our island and would benefit from our inclusivity.

Who are our neighbors? Those whom we choose to love as ourselves.
