Region 5 Looks at Doing More with Less

The Region Five Development Commission and Central Minnesota Initiative Foundation are about to study ways local government can spend less money while providing adequate services. Money from a HUD grant will be used to study population growth, loss of family farms, pressure on natural resources, access to public transportation choices and affordable housing in area counties.

Dan Frank of the Initiative Foundation tells KLKS News, a kick-off meeting will be held Wednesday at The Lodge in Baxter.

There will be four work teams of 25-30 people studying housing, transportation, land use and economic development in Cass, Crow Wing, Morrison, Todd and Wadena counties.

Anyone wishing to participate should call 218 894-3233.
