Grand Forks Voters choose to build on Arbor Park after close vote

Grand Forks residents narrowly chose economic activity and a new development in downtown Grand Forks over keeping a park that was put in place following the 1997 flood. But a quote from Grand Forks City Council President Dana Sande is perhaps most telling in how the City will move forward. “The thing that should never be lost is, there are a bunch of people that voted ‘yes’ that wanted to save that park, and so we need to make sure we listen to all those people and that we do what we said we were going to do”. Wise leadership indeed.
