Park District Approves Community Center Plan

Posted: Updated:

Planning for future growth in western North Dakota is a challenge for many local leaders. But Thursday, the Minot Park District took a major step in moving forward with its comprehensive business plan to find out what the needs are in the area.

The park district approved a proposal to work with IBIS Enterprises to conduct a business plan and feasibility study to determine the need for a community recreation, wellness, fitness center in Minot.

The goal of the business plan is to address all pre-developmental issues, helping to identify all parts of the project.

"We're starting out with a blank canvas. It's definitely not a cookie cutter process with this study. They come in, and they're going to be able to tell us what will work in our community and if a recreation center works in Minot,” says Elly DesLauriers the director of marketing and development for the park district.

The study is expected to take four months to complete. User groups, individuals and businesses interested in participating in the study are asked to call the Minot Park District at 857-4136.
