Business Development . Housing . Childcare . Workforce Development . and Quality of Life in Crookston.
For sake of discussion, it is not a stretch to say housing developments of all types are needed in all areas of Northwest Minnesota; Crookston is no exception. The housing department is working diligently with housing authorities, DEED, Minnesota Housing Partnership (MHP) and other developers to bring more housing options to the community. These include, but are not limited to, single family homes, multi-family homes, affordable, workforce and market rate housing to the community. The city has funding available to assist those who are working to refurbish an existing home, thereby keeping the home in the market for the next buyer.
Crookston is a great place to live, work and raise a family. Our employment opportunities are as diverse as they are abundant. Housing is one key component to support the booming local economy, as is childcare, workforce development, healthcare, active living options and other quality of life opportunities.
Everyday there are new opportunities, challenges, ideas and questions. Let's talk!
