It appears plans are in place for the last privately-owned temporary housing units - what we all know as FEMA trailers - to come off private property in Minot.
City officials recently granted a final extension to a few dozen residents who still had a trailer sitting on their property, while they worked on getting their permanent homes rebuilt.
But a stipulation of that extension was for those people to tell the city how long the trailer would remain, and what was being done to make their regular home livable.
City Planner Donna Bye says 20 of the remaining 21 homeowners with temporary units have responded with timelines for removing their trailers.
(Donna Bye, Minot City Planner) "They range anywhere from, I need another couple of weeks, I'm waiting on one more contractor then I should be able to be done, up to potentially a year, I think that is our top one."
Bye says the city is trying to help those with long rebuilding projects still ahead of them by reaching out to groups that are offering labor and material help.
(Donna Bye, Minot City Planner) "I think we have the understanding that there may be some people that we can now make a smaller group or smaller connection to these faith-based groups for additional assistance whether it be manpower, cleaning things, some financial aid...things like that."
The city is requiring that the temporary housing units be removed from residential areas because they do not conform to the city's zoning regulations.
More than two thousand FEMA trailers were occupied by flood victims at the peak of their usage following the 2011 Mouse River flood.
