Provide ideas about Mankato’s affordable housing needs by attending an open house, including round table discussions, on Tuesday, October 11. Two sessions will be offered at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Both will be held in the Mankato Room, first floor of the Intergovernmental Center, 10 Civic Center Plaza. For those unable to attend, ideas can be provided at Every Voice Mankato and a survey can be completed online.

Feedback will be important as the City of Mankato develops an Affordable Housing Action Plan. Topics that may be covered include homelessness, senior housing, rental housing, home ownership options, housing preservation and other housing needs.

Affordable housing is an important initiative in Mankato’s Strategic Plan and can enhance quality of life, attract new residents, retain current residents, have positive economic impacts and create equity.
