The city of Duluth announced a plan Friday intended to encourage the renovation of older homes throughout the community. It’s offering to waive half of building permit fees up to a maximum of $500 for eligible projects that improve homes that were built prior to 1940. Duluth’s housing inventory is one of the oldest in the state, with more than 40 percent of houses predating 1940. In contrast, only 20 percent of homes in Minnesota and 15 percent of homes nationwide are of the same vintage or older.
