The City of Minot’s Community Development Committee will consider nine funding applications at its July 20 meeting.
The nine requests total $11.9 million. The Community Development Fund currently has approximately $4.8 million available. The committee will determine if the submitted projects meet eligibility requirements, and make a recommendation to the City Council. The City Council will make the final decision on which projects, if any, will receive funding.
The committee will review requests from:
-YWCA: $5,000 to update a bathroom to ADA standards
-Minot Park District: $3 million for a new big cat habitat at Roosevelt Park Zoo
-City of Minot: $70,000 for audio/visual upgrades in City Council chambers and for changes to make City Council Chambers ADA compliant

The Community Facilities Fund collects 30 percent of one of the City of Minot’s 1-cent sales taxes.
Minot voters approved the fund in June 2011. In 2014, the city adopted a definition for a community facility that requires a facility to be owned by or be in a partnership with a political subdivision. Stand-alone non-profit projects are not eligible to receive funding.
