Council OKs RFPs for neighborhood, family shelter

Two Requests For Proposals related to the National Disaster Resilience Program were approved by the Minot City Council on Sept. 5. The RFPs for a Single-Family Resilient Neighborhood and a Family Homeless Shelter will be released to the public.

Two new Requests For Proposals for projects related to the National Disaster Resilience Program were approved by the Minot City Council on Sept. 5. The RFPs for a Single-Family Resilient Neighborhood and a Family Homeless Shelter will now be released to the public.

The Single-Family Resilient Neighborhood RFP will be for owners of large tracts of land that are already plotted for single family homes. The plan for this neighborhood is to have quality designed, well-built homes and bring together those that were most affected by the 2011 flood into a community of people who have shared experiences.

The Family Homeless Shelter RFP will be for non-profit groups interested in operating a family homeless shelter. The shelter will be adequately sized to provide six family units, a commercial feeding kitchen, and enough space to support other services required for the shelter. This was found to be a critical need for Minot due to a needs assessment performed in 2014 indicating there is no shelter in Minot that can house homeless families and mothers with boys over the age of 12.

These two RFPs will allow the City of Minot to address some of the needs of the vulnerable population.  Now that they have been approved, both RFPs will be advertised for three consecutive weeks in The Minot Daily News.
