Minot's MAGIC Fund should commit more than four million dollars to developing land for an expansion of the city's ag park and port.
That was the recommendation of the MAGIC Fund committee this morning.
The plan approved would use as much as 4-point-3 million dollars in sales tax proceeds to develop about 120 acres of land in Minot's Value-Added Agricultural Complex and Port of North Dakota expansion.
The Minot Area Development Corporation - the group that recruits new jobs for the area - reports securing two projects within that space.
MADC also says having shovel-ready land available can help in winning other projects in the area.
The recommendation now goes to the full city council for a vote.
