  • U32 Neighbors Like What They See

    by Kristen Juven | Aug 10, 2017

    Neighbors once opposed to large scale apartment complex in north Fargo like what they see

    FARGO (KFGO) - It's called U-32.

    The 5 story, $22 million apartment complex at 32nd Avenue and North University Drive in Fargo just opened. It didn't always look that way. Neighbors fought the initial proposal, built on a 25 acre site that was a horse pasture. They took their concerns to Roers, the developer, and to city hall.

    After months of meetings and discussion, changes were made to meet neighborhood opposition, and the project got the final city okay last summer. Pepper Eisenhardt helped lead the protest. He lives a block away. He was among several dozen neighbors invited to tour the complex this week. He calls the building "state-of-the-art" and "very impressive." 

    Roers executive Larry Nygard says 80% of the 115 apartments are rented. He says there's a nice mix of tenants, including students from NDSU, only a mile away, along with those with the North Dakota Air National Guard, and the Fargo V-A hospital, both nearby.

    Nygard says plans for up to three more similar sized apartment buildings on the property could start two years from now, depending on demand.

  • Jeremiah Program

    by Kristen Juven | Jun 16, 2017

    Fargo, ND — Jeremiah Program broke ground on its new Fargo-Moorhead campus in early June. The new campus, located at 3104 Fiechtner Drive South in Fargo, will provide safe and affordable housing for 20 determined, low-income families, as well as an on-site early childhood education center, classrooms where the mothers can build confidence and life skills, and spaces where they can meet with coaches to support them in achieving a career-track, college education.

    “We have worked hard together to get to this day,” said Diane Solinger, Jeremiah Program Fargo-Moorhead Executive Director. “Many of our community board of trustees and supporters have been with us since the very beginning, even through the peaks and valleys. They have given us unwavering commitment, and together we are building a campus to bring this excitement to life.”

    Why is this campus and Jeremiah important to Fargo-Moorhead? Currently, more than 2,300 single mothers are living in poverty in the Fargo-Moorhead area, a number that has increased 16 percent over the last six years. The majority of these mothers have children under the age of four with fewer than half of them enrolled in pre-school...

  • U of Mary

    by Kristen Juven | Sep 06, 2016

    Construction workers at the University of Mary put away the hard hats and put a halt to all the construction for one hour today to celebrate the grand opening of the school’s new residence hall at the center of campus.

    Students, faculty, staff and honored guests officially marked the opening of the all-female, 276-bed residence hall with a festive ribbon-cutting ceremony, the unveiling of its new name, Roers Hall (pronounced Roars), and tours of the facility. Roers Hall is just steps east of Welder library tucked between two other residence halls, Greg Butler Hall and Hillside Hall, forming a neatly nestled quad that fosters more interaction among students.

    “We are extremely grateful to the Roers family. Their faithfulness and devotion to Catholic higher education and their love for our students and the Benedictine Sisters of the Annunciation Monastery, founders and sponsors of the University of Mary, is an inspiration to us all,” said University of Mary President Monsignor James Shea. “Over the years Roers has expanded west from their home in Fargo, so they understand first-hand the growth we are experiencing in North Dakota, particularly in Bismarck and on our campus...”
