MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - The Mandan City Commission is applying for a $200,000 grant to make store fronts and businesses more attractive along the two-mile “Strip” on Memorial Highway.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1hTzMrB ) officials plan to use the Bush Foundation grant to mirror a similar incentive program the city uses to encourage downtown businesses to improve their facades and landscaping. Upgrades must be visible from the road.

Mandan business development director Ellen Huber says the intent is to improve the image of the “Strip” because it is one of the gateways to the city.
