Due to the extensive displacement of residents due to the flood, new development is needed north of the City.
The City of Minot will leverage a number of different funds in order to complete the much needed sewer infrastructure up to the Northern part of the City.
 With the help of CDBG funds the City also plans to use funds from the Energy Impact Office request,
The Magic Fund and finally issue a City Bond to complete the difference. Without the completion of this trunk line the Affordable Housing Development will not be possible.
 A private developer has 20,000 acres of land north of the City to develop a mix of housing including an apartment complex and an estimated 300 homes.
The current scope is under its preliminary design and therefore a detailed scope is not yet developed.

 allowing the developer to commit at least 51 percent of housing units developed to be affordable to low and moderate income persons.
