FARGO, N.D. — Fargo commissioners have approved a master plan for the city’s downtown.

KFGO radio reports that the “Downtown InFocus” project was a year-long process to outline future planning and development. It includes recommendations for housing, parking, street design and financing, among other things.

City Commissioner Dave Piepkorn (PEP’-korn) says the concepts are not mandatory but give the city direction on what needs to be done. He says it will “set the course for 100 years of what our downtown will look like.”?

Consultants considered comments from hundreds of residents who attended public forums in the state’s largest city.
