an abundance of wildlife and fishing opportunities

Milnor named 2014 City of the Year


   Milnor was named 2014 City of the Year by the North Dakota League of Cities Saturday during the closing event at the League’s annual conference Sept. 25-27

in Minot.


 League President and West Fargo City Planner, Larry Weil, read off the list of Milnor’s many accomplishments over the past few years.  They included: a renaissance zone with 44 completed projects and 6 in progress, a 5,000 square ft. child care center scheduled to open in 2015, a 16,000 square ft. community center paid off early and seven new main street businesses.

 The city annexed 24 acres for an industrial park which now includes a new veterinary clinic.  The park district has added new recreational facilities, a Safe Routes to Schools grant replaced sidewalls, put in 9 crosswalks and was used to install 6 handicap ramps.  Future plans include a walking path, additional softball diamonds and a subdivision for more housing.

Carol Peterson, Economic Development Coordinator, accepted the award saying: “We want to thank the League of Cities for their recognition of Milnor's

accomplishments.  Our community has worked hard to bring in new businesses and improve our town”. 

The City of the Year award was established in 1984 to recognize North Dakota cities for the quality, number and extant of activities undertaken in the community.
