Housing forum at North House builds framework for action
Mary Tingerthal is the Commissioner for Minnesota Housing Finance Agency, an organization that strives for safe, decent and affordable housing across the state.
During a forum held Monday, Sept. 19 at North House Folk School in Grand Marais, Tingerthal and about 50 other individuals talked on exactly that topic.
In addition to Commissioner Tingerthal, other staff from Minnesota housing, representatives from USDA Rural Development, Greater Minnesota Housing Fund and the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development participated in Monday’s forum. Also present were a number of local elected officials and staff from both city hall and Cook County.
Essentially the forum at North House was a planning session to discuss affordable housing and future development of Cook County. On that front, Tingerthal says the event was a complete success.
