Planning the River Valley's Future

Posted: Updated:

Residents of flooded residential areas throughout Minot have pretty similar ideas about what they want their neighborhoods to look like in the future.

That's what consultants with Stantec say about the information they're collecting in public meetings that have been held in recent weeks.

Phil Carlson of Stantec says the first round of meetings - and a second series of forums going on this week - have brought into focus the ideas that people have dealing with flood recovery.

The company divided the flood zone into six neighborhoods and asked people in each one to brainstorm on the future.

(Phil Carlson, Stantec) "All six neighborhoods had very similar things so we were able to put together eleven goals that were similar for all these neighborhoods so we're going to give back to the neighborhoods and say here's what you told us last time, now let's drill down a little more specifically. Tell us how we should treat that, how the city should develop more specific ideas on those things."

Those eleven areas include a need for trails and sidewalks, better street lighting, and revitalization of area parks.

The final meetings of the current series are tonight at seven at Roosevelt Park Zoo for people living in the flooded areas east of Broadway.

The next public input meetings on the plans will be in August.
