Downtown Plans

Posted: Updated:

As one planning project closes for the city of Minot, another is close behind.

The city of Minot is opening the final round of public input for the Downtown Revitalization project.

More than $387,000 was granted to the city from the US Department of Commerce.

City Planner Donna Bye says the first grant will be used for aesthetic changes downtown: lamp posts, benches, a trail system and possibly historical walking tours.

Plans are also in the early engineering stage for a second grant of $20 million that will pick up where the Streetscape plan leaves off to improve underground infrastructure downtown.

(Donna Bye, Minot City Planner) "The $20 million dollar project is infrastructure. That's the underground upgrades for not only the city but all the private utility companies as well. But that's the part that the public sees. That's the part that they want to be a part of. They couldn't really care less what kind of water pipes and sewer are underground. So this is the fun stuff."

The public presentation and comment session is taking place now at the Council Chambers.

The meeting is scheduled through 8:30 p.m. or you can visit the city website for more information at MinotND.org.
