Wright got it's name because there was no left turn there.

I think the Minot Daily News should drive West past Stanley and see that people are living in a mud hole between Stanley and Williston as there is going to be a huge building in Ross North Dakota. And employers will tire of driving people back and forth from Minot. It's sad that these people want a dream and should not have to live in Minot because they can't afford to live in Minot because of the outrageous prices. And yep Minot is only adding on to old sewer and will probably screw the people over where building is occuring...........I say go for it.....

I say go for it, but do NOT zone for industrial. Make it a bedroom community.

I think it's a good idea. Wright WY was just a single mailbox when I first started work out of Gillette WY. Soon there was a group of mailboxes and a small convenience store and a little bar to pick up refreshments for after work. It wasn't long and people started setting up a trailer house town and opened a real Post office and a school.Today there are over 1000 people live in Wright WY. The benefits of building new are mostly found in the fact that the old sewer and water systems are at capacity and sometimes there is not room to expand them. The biggest problem ahead for this idea is how hard Minot fights it to try to sustain their own dream of growth. The people will live as close to their jobs as they can and I hope they have the right to.
