Good housing is an important part of a good community and landlords have an important role to play.
If you are a landlord of smaller rental properties, we want to help!
Come to this event to get information on free resources in the community that can help you keep your property maintained, keep good tenants, and keep more money in your pockets!
We will help you find out:

>> How to get free energy assessments and upgrades to benefit you and your tenants
>> How to get help renovating your property

Dale Street Bridge Project Updates
It was a full house at the Rondo Community Library as we discussed the Dale Street Bridge Project. So much hard work has been done over the past few years to ensure that this project is shaped by the community.
Ramsey County provided project updates, the City of Saint Paul shared news that they would not be assessing neighbors along Dale for construction related costs, and our team of community artists unveiled their vision to bring beauty and hope to this bridge.
As always, there's more to come and more work to be done, but we are all doing it together!
