As Duluth grows, housing market tightens

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — The city of Duluth has worked hard to add jobs and make the city more attractive by nurturing its arts and outdoors scene.

Its success is highlighting a new problem: not enough mid-range housing is available for all those people moving in, Minnesota Public Radio reports (http://bit.ly/1jw5IDM ).

The most recent state data show Duluth added more than 1,000 jobs between fall 2012 and 2013. Mayor Don Ness says they are good-paying jobs, and the people taking them are looking for clean, modern housing that costs between $600 and $1,200 a month.

With Duluth's rental vacancy rate below 2 percent, a recent study found the city needs to add 1,000 new housing units in the next three years.
