What Next For Flood-Damaged Property?

Posted: Updated:

Over $700,000 in grants will be put towards researching areas hardest hit by the flood of 2011.

Minot City Planner Donna Bye told the local Rotary Club the details of long and short term analysis' that will be conducted.

Bye says grants from the Environmental Protection Agency and the Economic Development Administration will enable her team to compile a list of structures that are no longer usable and allow for Minot citizens and businesses to determine their future uses.

(Donna Bye, Minot City Planner) "We're going to shortly put up a nomination form on our city website where people can actually look at the map that's in the Brown Fields area and nominate a site or a building. So, for instance, if there was an old gas station or insulation company or there was a park that never got rehabbed, they can nominate those sites and then once the committee is appointed by the mayor, they can then consider that site to be a project."

Bye also says that these agencies often follow up with further grant money to implement the strategies formed by the research conducted.

The plans from the E-D-A assessment will be available April third.
