Casselton Renaissance Zone

Casselton has a Renaissance Zone Program that is authorized by the State of North Dakota and that spans the downtown business district and a few adjoining residential blocks. See the following map for covered area: Casselton Renaissance Zone Map

Proposed Renaissance Zone projects must be submitted to and approved by the city prior to start of construction. A Renaissance Zone proposal check-off and more information can be found in the City of Casselton Renaissance Zone Project Application Document

The City of Casselton wants to encourage significant investment within the Renaissance Zone to improve deteriorating properties and to curtail the vacation of buildings and potential decline in tax base. Properties should be renovated or built to meet the needs of the community and should conform with the City’s comprehensive plan and land use plan.
