Upcoming public input deadlines for downtown Sheyenne Street and special assessment feedback

Public Input Alert

The City of West Fargo would like to remind residents of upcoming deadlines to submit public input.

Sheyenne Street urbanization project input

The comment period for the downtown Sheyenne Street urbanization project is open until Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019. Residents can provide feedback on proposed street improvements to Sheyenne Street from Main Avenue to Eighth Avenue W. This street project is a major element in the revitalization of downtown West Fargo and has a goal of creating a vibrant downtown space that encourages walking, events and enhance economic development in the area.

The initial, proposed design calls for narrowing the existing road width, increasing sidewalk widths, slowing traffic, reducing crossing distance at intersections, easing pedestrian and motorists’ safety concerns and improving lighting. The proposed project implements elements of the City of West Fargo’s Downtown Framework Study, new comprehensive plan and Downtown Sheyenne Street Corridor Study.

To comment, residents can visit http://westfargond.gov/858/Downtown-Sheyenne-Street-Urban-Reconstru and review the project materials and then fill out the online form.

Special assessments community feedback

Property owners in West Fargo are also able to provide feedback on special assessments through Sunday, Feb. 10. The City of West Fargo has published the presentation and survey utilized at the Community Forums on Special Assessments at http://westfargond.gov/267/Special-Assessments for those who were unable to attend one of the events.

The presentation is available as a video with voice over from City Engineer Dustin Scott and City Administrator Tina Fisk. The presentation is also available as a pdf with annotations. After watching the presentation, residents can take the Special Assessment Community Feedback survey at http://bit.ly/westfargospecialsurvey.

The results of the community forums and surveys will be compiled and presented to the West Fargo City Commission. An initial report of community forum results was presented at the Jan. 21, 2019, West Fargo City Commission meeting and can also be viewed on the special assessment website.
