Public Meetings for Downtown Williston

Posted: Updated:

Downtown Williston is getting a facelift.

The Plan Downtown Project looks at not so much adding new buildings, but optimizing the existing structures and facilities.

The goal is to add to the value of downtown by improving the experience, public space, culture and image.

Officials say, this in turn will increase the desirability of the main street area, increase property value for business owners and improve the 'sense of life' for Williston residents.

(Rachel Ressler, Williston City Planner) "We've heard things like: people want bike lanes, people want things open later, people want live music downtown, they want events downtown, they want to see a public gathering space downtown. It's interesting to hear. We keep hearing these reoccurring things over and over which makes our job really easy. And we've heard from a variety of people: people who are new, people who have lived here for forever, so it's really interesting to hear all the different perspectives but they pretty much all have the same wants and needs out of downtown."

The public design workshop will be held at 18 - second street east, formerly Russon's Deli, in downtown Williston.

The public is welcome to attend Tuesday evening from 6 to 8 - Wednesday from noon to one - or again in the evening.

A presentation and discussion of the work done during the workshops will take place on Thursday, July 18 at 6 p.m. at the same location.

    The school year is barely a week old at Watford City and already it's clear the fastest-growing town in the Bakken has a rapidly-growing school system too.
