Join a conversation: Affordable housing in central Minnesota

Whose job is it to make sure there’s enough affordable housing in central Minnesota? What’s the difference between affordable housing and cheap housing?

We’re starting our second online conversation about the future of central Minnesota, asking questions about affordable housing in the area around Brainerd. Check out this Resilient Region discussion here and add your thoughts by using the comment feature at the bottom.

As we did with the first of these conversations, we’re posting questions posed by the Region 5 Development Commission and the Initiative Foundation to some of the residents involved in the Central Minnesota Sustainable Development Plan. Then we’re inviting anyone who wants to join in.

More about the effort here.

The discussion is part of a federally funded, several-year effort to create a vision for life in Crow Wing, Cass, Wadena, Todd and Morrison counties for the coming 20 years.

We’ll plan to follow up with an online chat at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 5.

    This is a challenge in more than those counties. There is very limited DECENT AFFORDABLE housing in other counties – Kandiyohi for instance.
