Minot Area Community Calendar

The City of Minot is hosting a second virtual open house beginning today to provide information and collect public comments as part of the Broadway Corridor Study. The virtual open house will run from April 19 to May 17 at www.movingbroadway.com. Visitors to the site can review project documents, view corridor alternative overview videos, and submit comments. There will also be live question and answer sessions on May 5 for Broadway south of 20th Avenue SW and May 6 for Broadway north of 20th Avenue SW. You must register in advance to participate in the live sessions by contacting Bethany.brandt@bolton-menk.com. “We are asking for the public’s help in prioritizing and refining the options that have been developed,” said City Engineer Lance Meyer. “The options we’re presenting now do not lock us into any final design. The information we’re gathering will help us determine what the final design will look like when we reach the point of design and construction, which is years from now.” The Broadway Corridor Study is a collaborative effort between the City of Minot, North Dakota Department of Transportation, and a consultant team.

There will be a fundraising event Saturday, May 1st at 5:00 pm at the New Horizon Motorcycle Clubhouse for James Crawford aka Turtle who was in a motorcycle accident on April 10th down on Burdick Expwy by the State Fairgrounds. There will be food, beverages, silent auction and more activities on May 1st at the clubhouse, if you can't make the event an account has been set up at Gate City Bank under James Crawford.
