Grand Forks has become more vibrant over the past year, and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum has noticed. That's why, he said, he recognized the city Thursday afternoon with one of four Main Street Excellence Awards.

Grand Forks was one of 10 cities to receive an award from Governor Doug Burgum on Friday, all relating to his Main Street Initiative to attract a 21st century workforce and enhance quality of life for North Dakotans.

The city received its award for Mayor Mike Brown's Vibrancy Initiative, which a press release from Burgum's office said consists of multiple projects involving public art, parks, infrastructure development and transportation improvements.

The governor recognized four Main Street Excellence Awards according to four different population groups, with Grand Forks being the largest. Other North Dakota communities being honored were Stanley for the Stanley Sports Complex Project, Garrison for its Main Street Improvements and Tuttle for the Tuttle Rural Innovation Center.

"We deeply appreciate the commitment and dedication of communities to differentiate and enhance the quality of life for their residents, present and future," Burgum said in a press release. "It's with great pleasure and gratitude that we recognize these communities for efforts to create vibrant communities poised to attract and retain a 21st century workforce."
