Why on earth would anyone build a build a large convention center at this flood prone location?

The Village Idiots over there at the fairgrounds need to go, not the Pioneer Village.

Just the fact that they want the Ward County Historical Society to vacate the premises and are not willing to lend them a helping hand is proof enough that the North Dakota State Fair Board needs to go and immediately is soon enough. That means NOW!

The village idiots in charge need to be run out of town on a rail.

Get lost!

The Pioneer Village has been at its current location for about 60 years now as I understand it. The State Fair wants to build a convention center and if I read the article correctly they want to get rid of the FAA building and other such buildings. Do they even have the $$ to do this project?

They must be getting advice from Fargo, build as much as you can in the flood plain, cry loudly, and wait for billions to come rescue you.

The problem is the State Fair Board members are from many different towns across ND - so you can't run them out of town, they are for the most part out of town. State Fairs - at least part of the purpose - is to celebrate the people of the state. The Pioneer Village does that - celebrates our heritage, our history. It is disappointing the board members do not understand that.

I think the State Fair Board has lost sight of what the people of the city of Minot would like. I think they should put it to our vote and see what we would like; a convention center (all seasons arena) or a beautiful slice of our own history.

Somebody needs to write all these comments on a small piece of paper and shove it in the Fair boards members ears, maybe they will get the message. From what we are being told and is reality the planet is warming the ice is melting at the north and south poles making more water vapor in the atmosphere. We are going to see increased rainfall and snow fall. Both attractions should be moved is my opinion.

this is the third comment on this subject. If the ND state fair board wants the pioneer village moved, perhaps they should offer to help. Instead of the adversarial attitude, offer to work with them and make a new plan, OR leave it where it is and make it better, a real attraction for the future. The past is an era best remembered because history has a way of repeating itself. Just being a holes about it does nothing but waste money on lawyers and courts.
