Welcome To North Mankato, MN


Rental Density Public Meeting

The City of North Mankato is considering policy recommendations to address the increasing conversion rate of single-family owner-occupied residential homes to renter-occupied homes in the R-A, R-1, R-1S and R-2 residential zoning districts in the City.  The changes include limiting the maximum density of rental units to 10% per block in affected zoning districts, increasing off-street parking requirements for rental dwellings, and authorizing temporary rental licenses for qualifying individuals. 

Public meetings will be held on August 17, 2016 and August 24, 2016.  Both meetings will begin at 6:00 p.m. at North Mankato Fire Station No. 2, located at 1825 Howard Drive West in Upper North Mankato.  Staff will be available to discuss findings from the recent Rental Density Study and answer any questions you may have regarding the policy recommendations.
