Harvey, North Dakota | Not Just a Place … It’s an Experience!

The City of Harvey, North Dakota is situated at the head waters of the Sheyenne River. Harvey’s unique Dakotan connection is its proximity to the Lonetree Wildlife Management Area to is southwest and the Butte De Morale to its northeast. Linked to the North Country National Scenic Trail, this area represents a unique wildlife management and recreation opportunity for residents and visitors alike.  And, the Butte De Morale, only 6 miles northeast of Harvey links the city with its historic past, hearkening back to 1851 when a battle erupted between the Metis of Winnipeg, Canada and the high plains Sioux over bison hunting rights along both banks of the Sheyenne River leading to its headwaters located within today’s Lonetree Wildlife Management Area.  The ensuing battle occurred north and south of the Butte De morale thereby ensuring that numerous arrow heads, shafts, and other artifacts would be found by settler households who homesteaded north and east of Harvey later in the century!

Harvey is a progressive community with a country appeal. Those who live in Harvey experience a great education system, abundant recreational opportunities for all ages with weather for all seasons, high-quality medical services, excellent city services and brand-new infrastructure, a low-crime rate and a first-rate retirement community.  They city’s business sector is vibrant with its opportunity zone designation, Renaissance Zone, new retail and clinical growth, and an enterprising agricultural sector.

As you gaze around you will see a community surrounded by rolling plains, the Butte De Morale, rich agricultural land, numerous wetlands, and the natural beauty of the Sheyenne River. We invite you to visit Harvey and experience first-hand what we have to offer: a small town with great community spirit, big ideas for the future and an attitude of hospitality.

Mitigation Plan Draft Available for Review

The draft of the 2023 Eddy & Wells Counties, North Dakota Multi-Jurisdictional Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan is now available for review on the Eddy County, Wells County, City of Fessenden, City of Harvey, and City of New Rockford websites.  A printed copy is also available at the Eddy County Courthouse and the KTL Building in the emergency manager’s office.

A public hearing to accept comments on the draft plan will be held from 7:00 to 7:30 p.m., CST on Thursday, June 8, 2023, at the KTL Building in Fessenden, North Dakota.  The public hearing will review the draft plan, results from the mitigation survey, and public comments received.  The public hearing will officially close at 7:30 p.m. and will be followed by a short Steering Committee meeting immediately thereafter.

The Steering Committee will review public comments received and participation by local jurisdictions and approve the draft plan to be submitted to the N.D. Dept. of Emergency Services (NDDES) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for approval.  Once the plan receives approval pending-adoption, each incorporated jurisdiction included in the plan must pass an adoption resolution before an official approval letter from FEMA is issued.
