Planning Commission Proposes Downtown Parking Garage

The days of circling around downtown for a parking spot may soon be coming to an end.

The Fargo Planning Commission is looking to build a 400-parking spot garage on the corner of 2nd Avenue North and Roberts Street.

The commission decided to move forward with the Kilbourne group as the developer for the project.

It is estimated to cost around 10 million dollars.

City officials say parking has become a growing issue.

“We have a high demand for parking there are a lot of people on the waiting list. There’s other developments happening in the area on both block nine, and this new development that would come along. Also the remodeling of other buildings such as the black building a lot of people are having to walk further,” said Jim Gilmour of the Fargo Planning Commission.

Gilmour says construction on the project will start as early as this April.
