If not, it’s not too late—in fact, you’re just in time. The Fargo Project is having its first public celebration and brainstorming summit called the “WeDesign Workshop” on Sunday, April 29. This event is all about using the ideas of residents to turn a storm water detention basin into a multi-functional neighborhood commons where everyone can relax and enjoy nature.
The space we are working with is the Rabanus Park Basin, a large18-acre grassy area contoured to hold water during storms and floods. In an effort to provide beauty, respite, leisure, play and creative exploration for all ages, the Fargo Project Team is engaging the community and seeking creative ideas. Public participation is at the core of the project. This is a unique opportunity for city residents of all ages and backgrounds to envision, design and build a new kind of place, full of nature, wonder and discovery– a place to connect with others and celebrate Fargo’s rich cultural diversity right in the city.
All community members and their families are invited to attend the WeDesign Workshop on Sunday, April 29. Events are planned at the following locations. Shuttles will run between sites.
- 12:30 p.m.: Celebration, music and refreshments at Rabanus Park, 4415 18th Ave S.
- 2-5 p.m.: Dr. James Carlson Library / Ed Clapp Senior Center, 2801 32 Ave S.
If you can’t make it to WeDesign, you can still participate by visiting the Warming House at Rabanus Park on April, 30, May 1 or May 2 where the team will be working and will welcome your ideas. Check www.thefargoproject for exact times.
