White Earth Nation

Industrial Park

The White Earth Reservation makes it a priority to collaborate and build strong economic relationships with all three counties, Becker, Mahnomen, and Clearwater. As such, new endeavors have been initiated that involve the creation of new jobs and businesses. Targeting new opportunities that fit into the communities themselves, White Earth has worked with state, city, and Tribal leadership to build in areas identified for business growth including industrial parks.  By working together, White Earth is seeing positive growth happen for everyone involved. 

Mahnomen Industrial Park:

The City of Mahnomen offers free land to any manufacturing business in its industrial park. Located conveniently off Highway 59, our 80 acre industrial park offers broad band internet access and public water and sewer. The entire industrial park is also located in a Jobz Zone. In addition, to free land the City can offer tax abatement, tax increment financing, New Market Tax Credits and a host of other economic development tools. Furthermore, being located on the White Earth Reservation can also open up other federal and state economic development incentives not possible anywhere else. In addition, new and existing businesses and manufacturers can take advantage of the city's revolving loan fund. 

The Mahnomen Industrial Park is located on the easterly edge of the City on East Adams Avenue. Adams Avenue is a ten ton road with all the services needed, such as water, sewage, storm drainage, high speed internet and electrical. East Adams Avenue connects with the White Earth College Road which curves through the River Land Housing Development and the new White Earth Veteran’s Center. 

The Parcel A on the Sketch indicates a 5.83 Acre parcel being developed as Mahnomen Baked Chips, LLC. and should be in operation the fall of 2008. Tract A consists of 20 acres of land that the City has donated to the White Earth Tribal and Community College. The College has recently obtained Federal Accreditation and this area will be the future Campus Site for the new college. 

Area A is a 24.5 acres parcel available for development, together with Area B of 5 acres will be used to attract new businesses to the Community of Mahnomen. Should you be interested in developing please contact either the Jerry Carrier, City Administrator of Mahnomen (218) 935-2573, Email mahncity@arvig.net or Jerome Lhotka, Economic Development Director, White Earth Reservation Tribal Council at (218) 983-3285 ext 5913 jeromel@whiteearth.com.
