I’ve sat back and let the rental density issues take their Darwinian course and here’s what you get. Ever since the 300′ rule was allowed to lapse, we’ve had five homes in two blocks flip. Here’s a particularly wonderful example of a classic old Duluth bungalow. It’s 100 year old front yard facing Woodland Avenue will be no match for the Kamatsu at the hands of a boarding house proprietor. He’ll be able to park six vehicles here.
Contact the city council, individually, by email and let them know that they should support reasoned developments to house renter’s near UMD and that they should oppose efforts to nullify regulations which help guide and motivate intentional development. I am not anti-student! I am anti-profit above community.
