Neighborhood Planning

Posted: Updated:

City of Minot officials are encouraging people to attend meetings early next week designed to continue the rebuilding process in the valley where nearly two years ago the Mouse River flowed out of the banks.

A program being called RiverFront and Center is about to kick off...

The idea is to bring together ideas on what to do to enhance the quality of life in neighborhoods that are indeed coming back to life following the disaster.

Minot City Planner Donna Bye says the flood zone has been split in six groups -- you see them here...

Zones 1, 2, and 3 will meet this Tuesday at St. Mark's Church from 6:30 to 8:30.

Zones 4, 5, and 6 will meet on Monday night in the new Zoo building at the same time.

She says the opportunities for what can happen in these neighborhoods are endless...

(Donna Bye - Minot City Planner) "...a small baseball park...it could be turned into a practice soccer field. You could use a gazebo and have a grilling station. Some neighborhoods may want a specific light standard or street light that is period to their neighborhood. They could look at signage announcing their neighborhood, like Green Valley with some vegetation around it."

These two meetings will be the first of a series that will stretch throughout the year helping to pin-point projects that may soon get underway in the valley.
