Sundevil, in case you haven't noticed these days reality is often negative or has a negative impact on the parties involved. Read the comments I made about the Pope they are not negative, or do you just concentrate on negative things?

as far as Minot increasted by almost 1,000 people? It says Minot's micropolitan (which includes the certain counties around Minot as well). What the census doesn't include is how many people left Minot (after the census was taken) after the flood destroyed or dameaged 4,000 homes. That is a lot of people impacted by the homes being destroyed. Not all 4,000 homeowners moved into FEMA trailers or have built new homes. Many have since left Minot. Hopefully ND can get a special census as is being suggested by Heidtkmap. Then the true numbers can be registered for the cities, counties and state.

I agree Early Bird. Minot's recent surge in population and construction had a lot to do with the Air Base (influx of new people assigned to Minot) and the flood...which generated a lot of new construction once the flooding past. We have seen already in the paper that Minot has "overbuilt" in hotel rooms and the housing market has caught up as well. Western ND will continue to grow (especially place like Williston). Minot? Probably not so much anymore.

What are you talking about? The population increased by almost 1,000 people. Compared to the last few decades, that is HUGE.

How about NOT automatically going negative with every single comment you make?

The population in Minot will continue to decrease as the western part of the state catches up with housing and retail outlets. Minot can only wish it could live in that tiny bubble created by the flood.
