The purpose of this plan is to create a guide for developing river access within the city limits of Greater Grand Forks. Increased river access benefits a wide variety of activities, including motorized and non-motorized watercraft, shore bank fishing, and nature watching.
This plan is not a binding document. It is meant to show potential river access development. Images used in this plan are conceptual to provide an understanding of the plan’s direction. Specific projects will require review by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the cities of Grand Forks and East Grand Forks. This may include detailed studies of soil conditions, accessibility, cost and effect on flood control management.
