A proposed change to Grand Forks’ building code seems to have pitted two unlikely groups against one another. Fire department leaders are against the change for safety reasons while local builders want it to be embraced for financial reasons.
In his column, Darrell Vanyo, chairman of the Flood Diversion Board of Authority, seeks the approval of Grand Forks and East Grand Forks for the Fargo-Moorhead Diversion. The commissioner needs to realize that the Red River flows north of Grand Forks through Walsh and Pembina counties in North Dakota and Marshall and Kittson counties in Minnesota.
People who live in the northern Red River Valley certainly are aware of the importance of reliable flood protection. After the flood of 1997, I imagine it is a great relief to know that Grand Forks and East Grand Forks now are protected from major flooding. Similarly, flood protection has been realized in the southern end of the valley in Wahpeton and Breckenridge.

While Grand Forks and East Grand Forks used green space to solve most of their problems, the Fargo plan sacrifices rural areas in order to allow development where green space should be.
