North Hill Project

Posted: Updated:

The City of Minot is hoping to secure funding to continue a redo of a project on North Hill that, in a few years, could deliver a much different look to the city.

The redo was made necessary following the flood of 2011.

A beautification project that brought flowers and trees to the area had to be left to die -- water restrictions in place meant surviving the season was tough for most of the young trees.

Now, many have been replaced thanks to a Department of Transportation grant...but they city is still short about 40 thousand dollars.

So what could it look like in a few years?

Ethan Gefroh is a planning department intern with the city.

He has put together renditions of what could happen should the trees get a proper start along Broadway.

You can see...it could really change the look of a drive thousands make every day.

As it stands now however...the money for the whole project just isn't there.

(Ethan Gefroh - City of Minot Planning Intern) "We only had enough money to cover about half of that. We need 64 more trees in order to fully vegetate the North Broadway corridor here. In order to get the full effect of the street trees on here, what we are doing is trying to get this grant to get the trees to provide the trees to complete the project that was once finished."

The City is hoping to land a grant through the Minot Area Community Foundation to cover the cost for the final 64 trees.
