City OKs townhouse project

Email News Alerts

People looking for quality rental housing in Perham could have some new options by this time next year.

City leaders have given the ‘go-ahead’ to a developer to purchase nearly seven acres of land in southwest Perham, for the purpose of constructing eight 4-unit townhouses.


While the process is far from final at this time, if all goes as planned, construction will start on the 32-unit development this fall, and will be complete by next summer.
