According to the Star Tribune, Polaris Industries Inc. has donated $300,000 to construct a 41-unit apartment building in Roseau.

Polaris Industries Inc. has donated $300,000 to construct a 41-unit apartment building in Roseau, the northern Minnesota town where about 1,600 employees manufacture Polaris all-terrain-vehicles and snowmobiles.

The grant, made by Polaris’s foundation, was given to the Greater Minnesota Housing Fund so Tamarack Place Apartments could be built by summer 2016.

County, city and company officials have long lamented the critical housing shortage that makes it hard for area companies such as Polaris to recruit and keep new hires in Roseau, which sits 10 miles from the Canadian border and is where Polaris was founded.
