13th Avenue Reconstruction

Overview:

The 13th Avenue reconstruction project is scheduled for 2018.

Funding:

The City of West Fargo project is estimated to cost $7.35 million, which will be funded through special assessments distributed through an improvement district. 

The total special assessment for a single-family residential property owner with less than 2 acres in the improvement district is estimated to be $3,500-4,650*, and a 1 acre commercial or multifamily property is estimated to be $15,000-20,000*. This balance can be paid in full, or over a 25-year term with interest.
