The Fargo Parking Commission discussed downtown development tied to parking issues Friday
The Fargo Parking Commission discussed downtown development tied to parking issues Friday. Developer Doug Burgum says he's more optimistic than ever a plan by his Kilbourne Group for a muli-use project on property around the U.S. Bank will get off the ground, possibly as soon as next year. It would incorporate a parking ramp, commercial, retail and residential space.
Burgum's been talking a number of busiensses that are considering moving their headquarters downtown but he says they all say parking is the number one issue they have.
The commission also discussed a proposal to build a parking ramp with retail and commercial space at Roberts Street and 2nd Avenue. Part of the property is now a city parking lot. The project, still preliminary, would require a private developer. It would contain 400 to 500 hundred parking spaces.
