After more than 10 years in the making, the Broadway Circle project is finally in its beginning stages.

The property at 1901 South Broadway in Minot will be home to 17 affordable housing units, a six-unit family emergency shelter, the Lord’s Cupboard food pantry, the Welcome Table Cafe, a community garden, and office space for Lutheran Social Services.

Many area agencies have worked for years to make Broadway Circle a reality so that the many needs of the Minot area could finally be met, while still working in conjunction with existing soup kitchens, food pantries, and shelters.

“This is going to be a place where people can reach out, they have a place to go, they can get themselves back on their feet, they can make themselves feel better,” said Mac McLeod, Executive Director of the Minot Area Homeless Coalition. “And you have a whole lot of agencies coming together who will support them in reaching their goals. I think that’s a great thing for everybody.”

We’ll have a more in-depth look at the big plans for Broadway Circle, Friday night on KX News at 9 on the Dakota’s CW.
