The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) will hold a public meeting at the Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center in North Minneapolis on Nov. 20 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. to provide updates on the relocation of the North Minneapolis WorkForce Center.

The current facility, located at 1200 Plymouth Ave. N., has outgrown its space and capacity to serve the needs of the community. DEED formed a community advisory council to increase community involvement and oversight in the decision-making process, and the agency encourages the public to attend the Nov. 20 meeting.

In May of this year, DEED issued a request for proposal (RFP) for developers to submit plans to relocate the WorkForce Center. After reviewing the first round submissions, DEED determined that the proposals did not meet the requirements of the posting. The department will re-issue a new RFP sometime in December.

Minnesota's 48 WorkForce Centers help people develop skills to prepare for work and find jobs, and they act as a resource for businesses to find talented employees.
