Waite Park foreclosure update

| No Comments
Most of Waite Park was originally designated as an at-risk area for foreclosures in 2009, qualifying it for Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) funding. However in the past 7 months the foreclosure crisis seems to have stabilized. From 05/01/09-08/03/09 there were 4 foreclosures in Waite Park, of which only two had been in foreclosure for more than 6 months. All of those properties have since been re-occupied.

From 08/03/09-12/02/09 there have been 5 foreclosures in Waite Park. The properties (listed below) have been referred to the Greater Metropolitan Housing Corporation (GMHC), which works with the City of Minneapolis to renovate housing; any of this most recent group of foreclosures that have not yet been reoccupied could be considered by GMHC as candidates for the NSP program mentioned above.
