Headwaters Development & CHC GroundbreakingNew Senior Housing Coming to Monticello

On Monday, Jan. 9 Mayor Hilgart and city staff joined Headwaters Development and CHC (Community Housing Corporation) for the groundbreaking of their new project in Monticello: 60 rental townhomes for seniors 55+ located on 7th Street West!

Headwaters Development & CHC Groundbreaking Action ShotThe project was initiated by Headwaters Development, and in November 2022 the company asked the Monticello Economic Development Authority (EDA) to approve CHC as a full partner-owner in the development. The development site is located on the easterly portion of a land parcel formerly known as Outlot A, Country Club Manor, at the corner of Golf Course Road and 7th Street West. The EDA has owned this 16.71-acre property for many years.

 The EDA also approved a newly established affordable housing Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district (No. 1-43). As a requirement, the developer has committed to creating and maintaining 40 percent of the units (24 units) as affordable throughout the life of the TIF District. The total cost of the project is estimated at approximately $20.5 million or $341,667 per unit.

The developer is using a modular style construction method. All building components are measured, fabricated, and assembled in the climate-controlled AVA (Advanced Volumetric Alliance) facility in Albertville, MN. The full building component units will be delivered to the site starting late March 2023 to be placed on the concrete pads. The developer plans to substantially complete construction of the twin home development by December 31, 2023.

The developer of this project also intends to move forward with a 102-unit multi-family housing building exclusively for seniors on the northerly portion of the lot later in 2023.   

We're excited to welcome another housing option for our senior community!

City Council Approves DMV Relocation

Yes, the Monticello DMV is moving, but not yet!2007-07-20-16  3rd and Cedar DMV

The Monticello DMV is getting a new location! On July 26, City Council approved notifying the State of Minnesota of intent to move the DMV from its current location to the Prairie Center building at 118 W. 6th Street. In addition, on Aug. 23 City Council approved a construction contract for the improvements necessary to remodel the first floor of the building for the DMV. 

Starting September 9, the FiberNet Monticello offices will be temporarily closed due to the construction and demolition in the Prairie Center building for the new Monticello DMV location. FiberNet is expected to reopen in their second-floor office on Monday, Oct. 4.

We’re thrilled to see this project progressing, but the existing DMV location at 119 E 3rd Street remains the office for the public until further notice. The new location is not expected to be fully operational until late 2021 or early 2022. Alerts and notices will be made prior to the move. 

The DMV is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturdays. For more information, as well as FAQs, check out our website!
