PINE, MN - Urbanization occurs naturally as people and companies reduce their commuting expenses and improve the opportunities for employment and education.
The City of Pine is trying to provide a good environment and solid social organization to keep up with the city's growth. The city has several ongoing projects to achieve this goal.
The City of Pine worked with Commonwealth Development Corp to build 35 units of affordable rental housing through the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency's Low-Income Tax Credit program.
The developer received various discounts and tax credits because the project will be restricted to low- and middle-income families, with some units being dedicated to those with special needs. The site also features a playground and a clubhouse.
Mill Site Redevelopment
A housing market demand study was conducted in March 2020. It was done to determine the type of housing demand that would be addressed by the proposed redevelopment of this site.
The work associated with demolishing the potato warehouse and mill site has received approval from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. This work will involve the removal of contaminated soil vapor mitigation systems.
This parcel is located in the same block as the A Place For You shelter, which serves homeless adults. It is also near Robinson Park, where live music is held each Friday night.
Many local businesses near the park, including the Pine Center for the Arts and the Townie bar & grill. Many more options along the Snake River, including a fishing pier and a community garden.
Timber Pines Senior Living
The groundbreaking ceremony for Timber Pines Senior Living took place on December 5, 2019. This new senior living community will feature a full restaurant, independent living units, and memory care units.
