Driving in Grand Forks

When I left GF in 1999, 32nd Ave S was where everything was. The only thing south of it was Uland Park. Now you are talking about 15 blocks south of that in under 20 years. GF is growing and I think it’s growing at a nice pace. 

You left in 1999 the same year Terry Wanless left. Wonder if he would have wanted to stay D2? Was he looking to get out or was he given an offer he couldn't refuse. Big changes started in 1999.

Don Tingum RIP

A quick Google search shows he died in 2013 and was 81 at the time. Your ramblings continue to be nonsensical.

It’s better to be ahead of the growth. South Fargo is a good example of this.

To a point, yes. However there are more pressing needs than converting a mile of 3-lane to 4 that currently is plenty adequate. The sales tax passing this fall is a big step in not only catching up but also being able to prepare for growth.

And he retired in 1993.

It’s much easier to start one up in Fargo than Grand Forks. They are always open for business. 

And tax breaks are awesome...ask Fed Ex.

If you look at the Midwest region (Mark Schill at Praxis Strategy Group Grand Forks has them) Fargo and Bismarck are the top two growing metro areas. They're at outrageous (unsustainable?) levels. 

But just a few slots down the list is Grand Forks. It's well above the regional average growth. It's well above peer cities except for (wait for it) Fargo and Bismarck. 

By comparison, St. Cloud is below the regional mean for growth. 

If all you can do is stare at Fargo and Bismarck, you're missing that Grand Forks is growing at an impressive and sustainable pace.

Not a conspiracy guy eh. Question data it happens every day in politics.

Can't blame the flood on anybody. But there's been a lot of damage to UND In a time when we're sitting on billions.  And nickname

Promise fertilizer plant Big Sky to GF while cuts are being made at UND. Shell game. 5OO Million in deferred maintenance. Who to blame never pinpoint that down. Not attacking you questioning things.

Bill O'Reilly to guest. You guys always come up with something.
