The city of Grand Forks is looking for input on a project to improve access to an undeveloped portion of The Greenway. This project is located between 47th and 62nd Avenues South, as shown on the map at right.
A brief history
This area along the river was originally outside of the city limits when the flood protection system was built after the 1997 flood. The neighborhood east of the project was annexed in 2014. The property is owned by the city and is part of The Greenway, as defined in Grand Forks 14-0402 city code:
The property in the project area has been largely undeveloped and residents, both near and far, have discovered the benefits of this quiet, public space. A small clearing on the riverbank at the storm water outfall has become a popular fishing and river viewing area. Unfortunately, this area has also attracted unwanted behaviors and vandalism.
What's being proposed for this project?
There are several opportunities for funding this project.
Information collected through this feedback opportunity will be shared with the GF City Council for consideration. Public updates will be available online as the project progresses.
