TRF Housing Development is on Track!

In 2012, the City of Thief River Falls did a housing study which outlined the need to develop 90 housing units every year for 10 years. Now, seven years later, Mark Borseth, Public Works Director, reports that the City is on track toward accomplishing the ambitious goals set forth in the 2012 housing plan.

With current development that is underway, Thief River Falls will be just 20 housing units shy of where the housing study said they should be, at the end of 2019. Additional planned developments, indicate that the City will actually exceed the 2012 housing goals. With the growth in employment which the community is experience, this is good news indeed.
