Former Planning Commission President Judith Martin dies


University of Minnesota geography professor Judith Martin, a former president of the Minneapolis Planning Commission, has passed away.

In a statement, James Parente, dean of the university, called Martin a "home-grown jewel at the U."

"She brought her knowledge and leadership to the city she loved, contributing to the development of plans for land use, downtown development, light rail stations, and the new zoning codes that were developed in the '90s," Parente said.
