Mott Economic Development

We have unlimited potential for Economic Development. We are surrounded by the vast open plains that nearly swallowed Lewis and Clark two hundred years ago.

Mott's workforce and resources are beginning to be discovered by the industrial world. The Mott area boasts a workforce of hardworking, honest individuals. Most have college degrees. Manufacturing skills such as welding are common among young people that grow up on farms. Land for construction can be purchased for a reasonable price. Housing is inexpensive in our area (see Real Estate). One of the finest school systems in the world, public or private, awaits families who move here.

Access to communication services in Mott is up to date. Consolidated Telcom Corporation, the local telephone company, has a 400 megabit fiber optic cable that loops in from Dickinson to CTC's local telephone office building.

One hundred years ago, German and Scandinavian immigrants came to the new world to start a new life for themselves from the stubborn sod. A few left, broken and defeated. With the sweat of their brow and toil of their hands, those who stayed thrived and prospered. An exemplary work ethic passed from generation to generation. Come and see for yourself.
