Public input sought on West Fargo bike and pedestrian study

WEST FARGO -- The Fargo-Moorhead Metropolitan Council of Governments wants public input on a bicycle-and-pedestrian transportation study near the Sheyenne Diversion.

Metro COG is holding a meeting from 5 to 7 p.m. tonight at West Fargo City Hall, 800 4th Ave. E., for people to review the study and ask questions.

The study analyzed the area between the Sheyenne River Diversion and Sheyenne Street/County Road 17 for improving north-south pedestrian and bicycle movement.

The public will consider options proposed by the study, including the development of a shared-use path along the diversion from 88th Avenue South in Horace to near 12th Avenue Northwest in West Fargo.

The study clarifies West Fargo officials' desire to add a regional bicycle and pedestrian network, according to a statement from Metro COG.

Written comments can be submitted to Metro COG, Case Plaza, Suite 232, 1 2nd St. N. in Fargo, no later than 5 p.m. Dec. 10. Comments may also be faxed to (701) 232-5043 or emailed to
