Minneapolis City Council members decided Thursday to reconsider the controversial development of a site in the East Phillips neighborhood.

Environmental activists and many locals want the Roof Depot site to be developed into an urban farm with affordable housing. Last fall, the City Council approved the city’s plan to turn the site into a water utility yard—potentially increasing traffic and pollution in a diverse neighborhood that already experiences environmental health problems.
