The Greater Bemidji Area Joint Planning Board on Wednesday tabled discussion, and possible action, on a supportive housing plan.

The plan to provide supportive housing for homeless and transitioning families will appear on the JPB meeting agenda Nov. 4.

Headwaters Housing Development Commission hopes to build a 20-unit supportive housing project on 5.1 acres of land now owned by the Beltrami County Housing and Redevelopment Authority north of the Bi-County Community Action Program, Inc., building north of 15th Street.

The project would provide permanent and short-term rental housing and supporting services for homeless and transitioning families. Housing is proposed to be broken into five four-unit town home-like complexes.
