Decision Likely on $1.6 Million County Bond for Lutsen Affordable Housing at Tuesday Night Meeting

The public hearing for the $1,575,000 Cook County Tax Abatement Bond for the Lutsen Affordable Housing Project is set for tomorrow February 28th @ 5pm at the Cook County Court House at the Cook County Commissioner's meeting.  Jay Anderson, of WTIP, stated this morning on the radio that it is likely a decision on issuing these bonds will be made at Tuesday night's meeting.

An EDA meeting on the same issue will be held earlier in the day - February 28th @ 1pm at the Grand Marais City Hall.

If you are interested in the documents that are explaining and supporting the Lutsen Affordable Housing Project, that will be partly funded by the $1,575,000 tax abatement bond, that is ultimately secured by we the taxpayers, you can find them by clicking here...Cook County Board Packet 2-28-17 and then clicking on "meeting materials" once rerouted to the board packet web site.

The purpose for this post is to inform all of us about the meeting and how to find the information about the project, not to support or oppose the topic.
