Housing

Population in the City of Wabasha has been growing and the growth of housing has been keeping a steady pace. Over the past five years (2000-2004) over 130 new housing units had been constructed. That’s an average of 27 units per year. In 2005 the number increased with building permits being issued for 44 housing units (9single-family detached and 35 multifamily or attached units)

The variety of housing is something on which the City of Wabasha also places a high priority. The 2005 City Comprehensive Plan has a goal of developing and maintaining “a balanced residential housing stock within the City that provides life-cycle housing opportunities and a range of housing options in terms of cost, location, style and affordability.” New market value and affordable single-family housing subdivisions, new luxury condominiums and financial assistance for pre-existing income qualified homeowners and renters are all programs which have assisted in the community in meeting that goal.
