The commissioners have also received confirmation for the street improvment project wth Dennis Luhmann. The city updated the wording of the contract with Luhmann, which he has signed and is now waiting for signatures from the Langdon City Commissioners. The materials for the project have been ordered.

Norb Schneider along with a few other residents presented their concerns about the zoning along the frontage road on Highway 5. The area that Lance Schill purchased was zoned commercial and the residents are concerned about the construction project that Schill had proposed to do.

The commissioners informed the residents that currently the building project is at a standstill  due to the NDDOT denying the request for a temporary approach to the proposed building site.
