Fargo Commission approves further setbacks for buildings from rivers more Greenway

We made a big stride in improving land use and backing away from the rivers in Fargo tonight. The Fargo Commission passed my motion from last fall to extend building setbacks 450′ from the center or 100′ from any floodway, whichever is further from the river.
There’s much more we need to do:

Thanks to all the volunteers from Essentia for whipping up 50,000 bags on Monday morning.  We finished the day with 85,000 bags and are hoping you can come volunteer for even better production the rest of the week.

Fargo, life’s a beach at Sandbag Central is now open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mon – Friday.  If you’re wondering what fun you can have on Saturday, come to the St. Patty’s Day Parade in Downtown Fargo Saturday!!
