Community Resources/Multi-Housing
What We Do
The Community Resources Unit's mission is to build community and lead the department’s problem solving efforts by collaborating with Burnsville residents and businesses.

Although community building is a department-wide philosophy, the Community Resources Unit has a lot of success through various functions involving Night to Unite, Multi-Unit Housing initiatives, Youth Relations and Neighborhood Watch.

Burnsville's Multi-Housing program is part of the Community Resources Unit, and requires rental property owners, managers and residents to share responsibility with police for creating and maintaining a safe housing environment.

The Multi-Housing Unit (MHU) reviews all incidents that occur on rental properties on a daily basis. Rental addresses can receive strikes based on tenant/guest behavior.  

Three strikes in a 12-month period of time requires action by the manager/owner.  If a particular residence receives three strikes, the complex must then move toward removing the tenant(s) within 14 days.

Examples of strikes can be loud music, parties, disturbances, damage to property and/or arrests. There are also other circumstances that would constitute a strike. Managers can also take action on their own prior to three strikes based on their individual lease language.
