The City of Grand Marais is taking a serious look at its housing issues

Feb 25, 2020 05:52PM ● By Editor

The City Council has recognized a need for additional housing in Grand Marais and access to housing that all people can afford throughout their lives was established as a community value in Grand Marais’ recent vision plan.

The Planning Commission believes that the best way for the city to aid in the development of more housing, is to increase property owner/builders access to existing utilities and infrastructure. Increased density will provide additional opportunities for housing in the city without the substantial levy increases required to fund new utilities and infrastructure projects.

The Planning Commission is currently working with HKGI to develop the standards that will allow for this increased density.
