"I do not have any doubt that Grand Forks is becoming stronger, more diverse, and richer in opportunity and is simply moving forward."
"But as we move forward... we must move forward TOGETHER."
Grand Forks Mayor, Michael R. Brown
2014 State of the City Address
During the 2014 State of the City address, Mayor, Michael R. Brown called for the creation of the Blue Ribbon Commission on Social Infrastructure.
As the city sees growth in almost all areas, it is important to note that the strength of a community is it's people and the city doesn't want to leave anyone behind as Grand Forks looks to the future.
The city also recognizes that a lot of the money that funds these type of social programs comes from outside the city and that money is diminishing.
The Blue Ribbon Commission on Social Infrastructure will be tasked with developing innovative, local approaches to make sure services are providing the greatest level of opportunity possible for all of our citizens including the elderly, young families, and children.
