Grand Forks planning for housing growth west of I-29


The city of Grand Forks has calculated more details on its long-term streets-and-sewers plan for the west end, including new housing expected west of Interstate 29.

The area south of the new Walmart in the city’s northwest is mostly vacant now, but city staff believes that it will eventually be 57 percent residential, 25 percent commercial and 18 percent industrial, according to a report given at a recent City Council work session.
