Downtown Action Plan

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

After a yearlong collaborative planning and community outreach process, the Downtown Action Plan is complete and available.  With downtown Grand Forks set to experience a multi-million influx of investment and on the heels of the Mayor’s Vibrancy Initiative, the Plan is meant to serve as a roadmap for continuing to drive downtown’s positive momentum.

The Downtown Action Plan focuses on four main areas: streetscape, parks and open spaces, development strategies, and wayfinding.  The finished product is the result of a process that engaged hundreds of Grand Forks area residents and incorporates their input throughout.  The plan is already living up to its name, as several projects it includes have already been put into “action” as implementation has begun.  We are proud of the work completed thus far and look forward to the exciting work yet to come.
