Spring groundbreaking planned for homeless apartments


BEMIDJI—Center City Housing and the Nameless Coalition for the Homeless are each working on separate projects to help Bemidji's chronic inebriate homeless population. Tuesday the two organizations met at the Headwaters Regional Development Commission office in Bemidji to celebrate some good news. Center City Housing is planning groundbreaking for a 60-unit supportive housing facility this spring.

Center City Housing Executive Director Rick Klun said he received notification on Oct. 22 from Minnesota Housing that funding has been approved for the almost $11 million facility. Construction costs will run about $7 million. In addition to adding housing options for Bemidji's homeless people, the facility will bring an estimated 20 jobs to the area.
