Minneapolis is bringing back rooming houses to ease the city's housing shortage problems and help stabilize people who are homeless or on the brink of it.

The City Council last week approved a new ordinance that will make it legal to build single-room dwellings with shared bathrooms and kitchens.

Council Members Cam Gordon, Lisa Goodman and Jeremy Schroeder crafted the ordinance to give low-income people a housing option that they say will address a gap in the city's affordable housing.
