daheinold / Thursday, September 6th, 2018 / Comments Off

The city is going through unprecedented growth and change and is looking for a dynamic and energetic individual who can lead the city’s Community Development Department through these changes. Located in north central North Dakota, Minot is an exceptional community with beautiful neighborhoods, friendly residents, and a healthy economy. The city encompasses 27 square miles of land representing the best of both worlds—the technology and cultural opportunities of a big city and the friendliness and security of a small town.

North Dakota was founded on agriculture which today remains as the number one economic industry. Recent estimates have placed the population at 50,000 residents, with an additional 5,600 individuals residing at Minot Air Force Base located 13 miles north of the City. Today, the city is again facing an exciting time of fast paced growth with the development of the Bakken oil formation in western North Dakota. The state now ranks as number two in the nation for oil production. Oil industry activity has assisted Minot and North Dakota in maintaining a very low unemployment rate and drawing in other industries to the area.

The City of Minot is a full-service city with 423 fulltime personnel and has a total combined operating and capital budget of $143.4 million for 2018. In early 2018, the City of Minot combined the planning and zoning division and building plan review and inspection division to be overseen by the newly formed Community Development Director. This action was taken in an effort to streamline requirements for current and future development and to provide more effective and efficient service.

Salary: $114,194 – 139,134
