The D, you can only hope, you can only hope. I for one will not let people play rock, paper and scissors with my life. Scrambling to match infrastructure to demand was taken care of by the flood. If you watch any news or travel to western ND you will see where true growth not just rebuilding is happening.

Ostensibly, flood protection work is also ongoing. And with Minot's current explosion of growth, I doubt "no people" will be much of a worry. Rather, the city is scrambling to match its infrastructure to increasing demand.

The D, I think it is you who is missing the point. Why build stuff in an unprotected flood plain? Do you have an answer for that? I expressed concern for peoples needs because until they are protected why build anything. If there are not people you don't need parks.

Early: I think you're missing a broader point that the Minot city government is split into separate departments, and that the park board is not at all responsible for rebuilding people's houses. It is also worth noting that its various rebuilding projects are largely (if not wholly) paid for from aid money, grant funding, and insurance compensation set aside specifically for this particular usage.

No problem at all, glad to hear your clarification on that. I would agree with that as well. I'll be interested to see how this flood protection plan shakes out.

Magic, sorry if I offended you and I do agree with you also. I do enjoy recreational activities and they are a good investment for Minot to make and maintain. I just wonder about spending in the flood plain and 'that baloney' before it is all settled as to what is protected and what isn't. Water happens.

Earlybird I understand your comment fully but the city doesn't need to be put on hold from fixing itself back up to wait on every single displaced homeowner until they are back. Some houses have done nothing since the flood. Every person or family situation is going to be vastly different. I agree that the ones who are wanting to move back into their houses should be helped out but I also don't want to see other parts of the city that I like and wanting to be fixed having to wait just because every single homeowner isn't back. Some of them probably have no plans to fix up their houses and have moved on. If you don't enjoy recreational activities that's your right but there are alot of us who do enjoy them and it's not baloney to many of us who live here.

When are the city leaders going to catch on? Quit all this baloney about recreation until all the displaced flood people are taken care of. Must have run out of ways to pilfer money from the flood funds or something, the flood funds are probably gone. The greed in your city is a sickness that has spread throughout your daily lives.
