By the Fall of 2016 the City of Minot and its partners will be updating the Affordable Housing Study to deem how much affordable housing is needed in the Magic City. City Manager, Lee Staab said "There is a difference between available and affordable." in his most recent public update to the City Council in June. This study will also help to determine if it's in the City's best interest to build off existing infrastructure or start anew.This goal will rely heavily on the input from the citizens of Minot at various public meetings.
