Come to the Fargo Commission room 8:30 – 9:30 Friday Dec 7th, to see and visit with 18 5th year landscape architect students as they display their concepts for connecting Downtown to the Riverfront. These young talents are sharing their visions for creating a beautiful community space in the area east of the Civic Plaza where permanent flood protection will be built.
Revitalizing our city’s core is ongoing and many of the successful projects like Broadway’s redesign, new Main Ave bridge and riverfront area there were derived from community planning work in the 2002 Downtown Framework plan, 2003 Riverfront Development Plan, 2007 Framework Plan, and Fargo GO2030 that is ongoing to implement these plans.
These pictures below are just a few examples of why we need permanent flood protection.
