For the first time in nearly 30 years, housing advocates have the opportunity to help shape the regional housing policy in the Twin Cities. The Metropolitan Council's 100+ page Housing Policy Plan, the first such document since 1985, has the potential to impact housing in the Twin Cities metropolitan area in several key ways. With the Council's unique ability to convene public and private stakeholders around issues impacting the Twin Cities, the plan's impact is far-reaching.
In particular, the plan includes numerous initiatives for expanding housing choice in the metro area. For this, it deserves scrutiny and support, although MHP recommends several amendments. Read more about what's in the plan, and how you can weigh in.
