It was my pleasure to meet with dozens of neighbors in an East Phillips apartment building last week to discuss ways to improve the safety and security of their homes and improve facilities for the many children who live in the building. One of the highlights of my visit was a tour of the backyard and getting to hear the vision for the space that the young residents shared with me.
The Ninth Ward is home to a large population of renters and I am committed to ensuring that every family has a healthy, safe, and dignified place to call home. My office works closely with the Minneapolis Department of Regulatory Services to quickly resolve issues that renters are experiencing. We are also working with community members, other policy makers, and staff to ensure that we continue to improve the health, energy efficiency, and livability of rental housing in our city.
Renters can report issues to 311 or contact Homeline at (612) 728-5767 if they are in need of advice or legal advocacy.
