The Jamestown Planning Commission gave preliminary approval Monday to a zoning change for Beulah Park to allow for the construction of single-family dwellings and twin homes. Beulah Park is a former Bible camp bordered on three sides by the James River at 901 4th Ave. NW. The request will be on the agenda for final approval at the May 8 Planning Commission meeting. If given final approval, the zoning of the property would change from park/open space/recreation to R1a zoning, allowing single-family and twin homes.

The wind energy bill passed by the North Dakota House of Representatives is an effective compromise, according to Rep. Mike Brandenburg, R-Edgeley. "It's kind of a meeting in the middle," he said, referring to. "If everybody agrees, and the township and county agree, it (a wind farm) can be built right."
A bill co-sponsored by Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., that could make more money available for a shooting range near Jamestown probably won't help make a range a reality, according to Curt Kaseman, one of the organizers of the Jamestown Marksmanship Education Range. "Funding has never been the issue," he said. "Getting the community of Jamestown on board has been the issue."

The Jamestown City Council approved plans for another access road to the Jamestown Regional Medical Center during a special meeting Thursday.

An ideal spring melt has reduced the chance of flooding this spring if normal weather conditions continue, according to Allen Schlag, hydrologist with the National Weather Service in Bismarck. The Missouri and James River Basins Hydrologic Outlook report issued Wednesday said the probability of flooding above the Jamestown Dam had decreased with only a few pockets of deep snow drifts remaining. The snow that has melted has largely soaked into the ground, which has resulted in a little increase in river or reservoir levels.
