Are these docs online?

https://www.grandforksgov.com/home/showpublisheddocument?id=39099

Here's one of the documents presetned at the City Council meetings that briefly discussed a children's museum as one of the additional options they'd like to put at that location. More big picture with the focus being on the BMX track but as you mentioned, there has been some behind the scenes push for fund-raising to see if other parts of it can become reality.

I don't get the one at all.  Why would Sanford go that route and pick a name already in use?   Are they that much of a prick?   Probably.

Seems like this is where the aquarium should be built.

Because Sanford names all of their clinics the exact same: Sanford Health <location> Clinic. 

I get where the existing clinic is coming from but its not like they picked some completely unique name and are being infringed on. Pretty sure there have been other iterations of "Grand Forks Clinic" in the past prior to them operating under that trade name.

Based on what I've read about the estimate so far, this seems to be a surprise to the upside, correct?

The City of Grand Forks gained over 6,000 population whereas the GF County outside of the City lost about 20 population.  The City of East Grand Forks gained just under 600 population yet Polk County as a whole lost around 500 population.

Has the AFB changed size since the last census?

How about a swimming pond with a beach? 

Old Mill State Park has a nice one.

Cant be very expensive.

This in University Park would be quite the campus recruitment tool.

College kids could use it for a full week each school year!! 
 

but In all seriousness stuff like that might keep a few more college kids in town in the summer?

Aren’t they planning something like this south of KingsWalk?  Is it hard to mitigate against a huge mosquito breeding ground?
