Grand Forks Land Use Plan 2050

About the Grand Forks Land Use Plan 2050

The City of Grand Forks will lead the effort to develop the 2050 Land Use Plan in partnership with the Grand Forks – East Grand Forks Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). The development of the Grand Forks 2050 Land Use Plan Update will be supported by the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the project consultant team.

Planning and development in The City of Grand Forks is currently guided by the 2045 Land Use Plan. This plan guides how the City will manage growth and development over the next 30 years within the city limits as well as our two-mile Extraterritorial Zoning Jurisdiction.

The Land Use Plan is updated every 5 years to respond to changes within the community. The Grand Forks 2050 Land Use Plan Update will address a wide range of topics, including:

  • Population and employment projections
  • Housing
  • Transportation
  • Land use
  • Sustainability

The 2050 Land Use Plan Update includes a public involvement process whereby the area residents and business owners will have an opportunity to share perspectives and stay involved. Stay connected to the Plan update process by joining our electronic mailing list below. Periodic updates will be provided through this website, with email notifications for those who sign up.
