In her opening remarks, Commissioner Mary Tingerthal announced that this would be the last board meeting in the Agency’s current building. The next board meeting will be held August 31 at the offices of Northwest Area Foundation, and then meetings will resume permanently in the former Macy's store in September. Prior to the move, Tingerthal added, staff will be consumed with its review of the 55 multifamily and 30+ single family proposals submitted through the consolidated RFP (which will come before the board at its October meeting).
John Patterson, Director of Planning, Research and Evaluation, introduced the Agency’s summer interns and stated that this year’s two research projects concern the homebuying patterns of millennials and households of color, and the developer fee schedules comparing Minnesota to other states.
