Rehab Begins at 915 22nd Ave N!

Post and photos by Jeff Skrenes, Hawthorne Neighborhood Council Housing Director

Rehab work is in full swing at 915 22nd Ave N, making it impossible for no-accounts to use the spot as a place to come and deal or use drugs. Neighbors are happy to see the progress, and we hope the house will be sold to a good owner-occupant in the near future!

What do you have against renters? Aren't we valued part of the NOMI community? I don't see why this house couldn't be owner occupied or rented to a nice family.

The Hawthorne Neighborhood has perhaps the highest ratio of renters to owner-occupants in the city of Minneapolis, to the point where this is unhealthy in terms of building a stable and vibrant community. The bottom line is that Hawthorne, and much of NoMi, needs a better balance of renters and owner-occupants.
