I think the neighborhood should pick their own leaders is the only fair way to do that. The Mayor needs to stand ready for suggestions and that is all he needs to do until the neighborhoods deemed themselves ready with a report.

According to Donna they will need another grant to implement the ideas that are brought forth. I have to wonder why nothing can be done with out the federal government money involved. I thought the buy-out of homes was for flood portection, not mini dog runs.

There are buy-out homes for flood protection but also the city is going to buy properties that have been abandon. This way people who have gone back and redone homes do not have to have around them boarded up, untouched homes.

Why waste time? The city council will do what it wants. They will go against the residence of the neighborhood anyway. A big example of this is Christ Lutheran Church project. They rejected the decision of the City Planner and the Public Works Director that opposed it. They went and bypassed and broke city codes for their own personal gain. So Minot voters, beware of the city agenda. This neighborhood went from "A friendly neighborhood block" to "Very Unfriendly Neighborhood Block."

Chasin, the city council went against the people of the neighborhood when they decided to allow mobile homes on lots where stick built used to be. They are only concerned with what looks good to them.

Nancy1, I guess all those who rebuilt are the ones being duped. If all the flooded homes had been abandoned, would the city have purchased all of them for dog runs, etc?

What ever happened to their BILLION dollar flood control project they were planning before the waters even receded in 2011?

They could have paid people for this task, if they would have accepted the $150 million from the feds in exchange to raise the flood plain a few feet...VOLUNTEERS..REALLY???

How stupid when you don't listen to the people especially in NW Minot where a sewer failed and backed up two weeks before Christmas? Nobody reported anything when it was reported to the police...****e on folks wake up and boot the city out!
