MinnPost’s Cityscape is losing one Steve but gaining another.
Steve Berg, who developed our Cityscape blog as a place for readers to learn about and debate topics related to urban life in our metro areas, is leaving MinnPost to develop his own consulting business. We’re going to miss Steve, not only because he’s a terrific person but because his deep knowledge of urban affairs, combined with strong reporting skills and an elegant and engaging writing style, has made Cityscape a must-read for people interested in urban-planning issues in this community.
We wish Steve all the best, and thank him for his important contribution to MinnPost’s success and the outstanding journalism he produced for Cityscape.
Steve may be leaving MinnPost, but Cityscape isn’t. We are pleased to announce that another experienced journalist with a strong background in urban affairs will be taking over Cityscape. Beginning today, Steven Dornfeld will be reporting and writing Cityscape articles every Monday and Thursday.
Cityscape’s new Steve has been a government reporter for the Minneapolis Tribune and the St. Paul Pioneer Press, covering everything from political developments in the Legislature to brick-and-mortar developments in the Twin Cities and suburbs. He has also worked as a Washington, D.C., correspondent for the Pioneer Press, as well as an editorial page writer and editor for the paper. From 2003 to earlier this year, Steve experienced a close-up view of the challenges of urban planning in a major metro area as the Metropolitan Council’s director of public affairs.
