DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — City leaders in Dickinson are looking at plans for one of the largest worker facilities yet proposed for the oil patch.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that Accommodate International is proposing to build a 3,000-unit campus on the community's Energy Drive.

The company held a pre-application meeting with the city last month and hopes for final approval of the project in June. About 1,000 rooms could be available toward the end of the year.

Accommodate International would use a "podular" construction method to build apartment buildings on a 44-acre tract. The company says the worker rooms are larger than at existing man camps and each has a private bathroom.

The facility would have food service, relaxation and computer areas.
