MacMartin at Council

The Minot City Council committed to continuing its partnership with Minot Area Chamber EDC by agreeing to a contract for 2022.

The City agreed to pay $435,000 for the contracted services from MACEDC, which include:

  • Developing a comprehensive economic development strategic plan
  • Developing key performance indicators
  • Conducting business retention and expansion interviews or surveys
  • Marketing and promoting the City of Minot to attract new primary sector businesses and employment opportunities consistent with the City’s overall goal of a sustainable, diverse economic base and economy
  • Engaging with community and statewide partners to assist in developing a workforce development strategy for the Minot region

MACEDC Director John MacMartin discussed the objectives for 2021, and will provide an annual report to Council in early January 2022.

MacMartin listed several areas of success in 2021, highlighting ongoing work at Minot’s intermodal facility, continued support for Minot Air Force Base, and providing information about Minot to national site selectors, among other efforts to attract new companies and expand existing businesses in our region.

“We do a lot, we just don’t always talk about it because that’s not what we’re used to doing,” MacMartin said. “This is kind of a preemptive look from me about what you’ll hear in a more formal presentation in January.”
