A plan has been drawn up to begin talking about how to develop all the land around the Alerus Center and Canada Inn.

The plan shows space for specialty retailers and also includes a UND connection.

The land use plan is just the beginning of forming a game plan for development. The city will take the lead and work with the Alerus Center and Canada Inn. The plan shows space for specialty retailers and more UND research labs like the Reac One that was built recently just north of Demers Avenue

Steve HymanALERUS CENTER EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR: "You want people to leave here go back home to their other states and say we're actually a tourism destination that's what that land use plan is all about."

In the next couple weeks the city will sit down with land owners and have a meeting to talk about what stores and restaurants do they want to see there and how to begin the process.
