Project BEE releases statement on City of Minot taking over Broadway Circle project



Minot, North Dakota – Regarding the City of Minot assuming control of the Broadway Circle family shelter project, Project BEE stated on Tuesday.

A mutual termination agreement with Project BEE and its subcontractors was approved by the municipal council on Monday.

The shelter’s board of directors said:

The Project BEE board is glad we could follow through on a mutual termination agreement with the City of Minot regarding our sub-recipient contracts for the Broadway Circle Project. We feel passionate about the necessity for emergency family shelters and affordable housing. Unfortunately, we were not able to see this project to completion. We are happy that they will be able to proceed and fulfill the obligations to our community, contractors, and sub-contractors. Our ultimate goal is to provide resources that meet the needs of the community. Please know that the project BEE Board and staff are fully resolved to recover, restore, and revive our programs and services for our clients through our downtown shelter location.

Due to financial difficulties, the shelter abruptly shuttered in late December; two weeks later, its warming center was able to reopen.

According to Tarina Crook, the interim executive director and board president, most of Project BEE’s operations are continuing Tuesday as they did before the closure.

On its website and Facebook page, members of the community can find ways to help Project BEE.

The public is also welcome to attend open houses at the shelter on Friday and Saturday, February 16–17, of next week.

The hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
