I'm confused Markhighwater. Using our tax money to bail out flood victims ISN'T socialism?

Another slap in the face to the people who lost it all in 2011...just like their big dreams of a Billion dollar flood control channel before the water had receded in July 2011.

Another fine example of socialism for the rich,capitalism for the rest of the poor souls who lost their homes in lake Minot in 2011, due to the mismanagement of the Canadian dams we all paid for in the 80s via the original magic fund tax.

I always thought that downtown shop keepers wanted people spending money in their shops. But, parks, parks, and more parks so people can walk around.

How much are they paying these consultants? And 15 to 18 years.

Oh good grief, more pie ion the sky plans. Take parking for parks, but the need for parking will increase because of the increased building. Parks, parks and more parks. Will make the college closer to downtown? really? why? We are in the automobile era. Nearly every college kid has a vehicle or access and they seem to get to the bars all over town. If downtown had things that enticed people, people would be there. Case in point, look at the increased traffic at Charile's under new ownership. New schools, new parks, new art space, new parking ramps, blah blah blah.

There are so many books out there of reinventing Dowtown Minot. Not funny. If this is part of a flood plan, why is it that they got money? You should be redoing the pipes in NW Minot near Longfellow like you did in NE Minot. People are tired of having it stink all of the time.....

and i suppose it will only be a 'pinch' we'll see in new taxes to pay for this too. This time it's for 'the city' instead of for 'the children'. Chamber of Commerce really loves spending OPM to help their own businesses. how many times do WE have to pay to re-invent downtown?
