Work has begun on two new rental housing projects in Perham.

Construction just started on the latest Grow Perham apartment building, and the groundwork is being laid for the soon-to-be Perham Townhomes development.


Both are being constructed on the southwest side of town, near the new hospital. Together, they will provide 47 new rental units, which the city is in need of. City leaders have been discussing and trying to address a rental shortage for the last several years.
