In the past 20 years, the City of West Fargo has more than doubled its population and land area. While much of the city's focus has been on booming residential and commercial development, it is time to focus efforts on amenities, community development and the intangible elements that make a city special.

To the end, the City of West Fargo has successfully developed a public-private partnership to bring more than $40 million in redevelopment to the core area of town along north Sheyenne Street. This revival includes five new mixed-use buildings, a civic plaza, branding and future street improvements to promote walkability and livability in the area.
