Proposed Rental License Program

WHY? So every tenant has a safe and healthy place to live.

Red Wing is committed to ensuring a healthy place to live for everyone, and the Red Wing 2040 Community Plan Strategy 8.C.1. calls for Red Wing to implement a Rental License Program that will help accomplish that goal. We’re looking for your thoughts and feedback during this planning process. The program is proposed to start in 2021. 

What’s Happened So Far:

  • A November 10, 2020 City Council Workshop is scheduled for Council to review tenant survey results and discuss more ideas and options for the proposed program. This virtual meeting is open to the public. Email melissa.hill@ci.red.wing.mn.us to learn how to attend virtually.
  • Flyers and surveys were sent to all Red Wing tenants the week of October 14. Survey results will be available on this page when compiled.
  • Council approved a tentative timeline and process that includes gathering more resident input and providing strong education and communication. Read the report.
  • Community members attended a public meeting at the Public Library in early March. See the summary of concerns.
  • Plans are being made for small-group virtual meetings with owners, tenants, and neighbors. If you wish to join one of these groups, please email your contact information or call 651-212-3812.
