DULUTH, MN -- Six recommendations have been sent to Duluth's mayor to help address the housing shortage in the city.
In the fall of 2019, Mayor Emily Larson created a housing task force.
The idea is to address homeownership issues facing those that make $50,000 a year or less. That's half of Duluth's population.
The results of their findings have been released, which include the following.
• Partner to Create a Housing Trust Fund
• Loan Guarantees
• Land Donations
• General Obligation Bonds
• Revenue Bonds
• Assistance for Homeowners to Improve Use of Existing Space and Create Additional Units on Their Property
The task force says they believe their ideas offer a limited but positive contribution to a much broader community discussion on housing.
