FRYBURG, N.D. (AP) - The Billings County Commission has rejected a company’s plans to build a hotel for oil workers attached to the former school in Fryburg.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1uz0V8h ) that the commission decided at its meeting Tuesday that the hotel for more than 300 oil patch workers would be too big for the tiny town in western North Dakota.

Developers of the proposed Morgan Lodge planned to add a four-story hotel onto the former Fryburg school, using the school for a restaurant and dining facility and meeting space.

The commission agreed with its planning and zoning board, which denied the plan at a meeting two weeks ago. Some in the community of 20 people voiced concerns about possible noise, traffic and crime.
