Autumn Fun

In October, PRG worked with the Jordan Area Community Council and the Northside Home Fund to put together an autumn celebration to bring together old and new neighbors around the cluster of new and newly rehabbed homes near 25th and James. Over 50 people attended and enjoyed the day.

Board of Directors News

This fall the PRG board of directors said goodbye to Michael Anderson, who stepped down after seven years of generously volunteering his skills and energy in support of PRG’s work. Thank you for your leadership, Michael!

So Many New Homes

Our housing development staff are busy making new and rehabbed homes ready for buyers:

  • acquiring a house for rehab in Brooklyn Park, using Neighborhood Stabilization Program funds. Renovation will take place over the winter, and the house will go on the market in spring.
  • Nearing completion on a rehabbed house in Jordan and a new, green home in Harrison.
  • Submitting a proposal for funds to build two more homes in Jordan through the City’s Green Homes North program. Construction would happen in 2016, and this would be PRG’s 11th and 12th Green Homes North homes.

Many thanks to Minnesota Housing for supporting our ongoing single-family development work in partnerneighborhoods through the Impact Fund!
