Bowman Gateway Industrial Park Receives Award for Project of the Year

November 15, 2016

The Project of the Year recognizes a project that has made a significant contribution to the economic health of a community or region in terms of job creation, partnerships and overall economic impact. The idea for an industrial park was sparked with the relocation of the Bowman Regional Airport and the desire to create a diverse and sustainable economy in Bowman County. The project was a collaboration between the Bowman County Development Corporation, the City of Bowman and Bowman County. The project creates land availability for industrial businesses, provides opportunities for job development, fosters growth in the county’s tax base, generates commerce for other existing businesses, and greatly contributes to the economic health of the region.

“The Bowman Gateway Industrial Park was a large undertaking for a smaller town and has the potential to make a significant impact in the region for years to come,” says Connie Ova, EDND president. “We are pleased to recognize Bowman for their dedication to the economic health of their community.”

EDND represents more than 80 state economic development organizations on the front line of economic development efforts throughout North Dakota. The primary purpose of the organization is to support the creation of new wealth and the diversification of North Dakota’s economy. Additional information is available at
