Addressing the Need for Affordable Housing in Southeast Minnesota

KAAL-TV covered the May 15, 2017 Workforce Housing Summit in Rochester MN and produced this news report.


Affordable housing is a topic on the minds of many local leaders, and as Rochester and Southeast Minnesota continues to grow that topic is a top priority.“Workforce development is a huge issue for our entire economic region,” said Steve Borchardt with the Rochester Area Foundation.

Concerned members of the public, city leaders and businesses all gathered Monday to discuss issues with affordable housing and how other communities can work together to solve the problem.

“Hopefully there can be some take away from this that help communities move forward with their housing needs,” said Albert Lea City Manager, Chad Adams.
