Letter: Burgum plans have potentialThanks to Doug Burgum and Kilbourne Group for bringing forth a plan to build a Fargodome expansion downtown. I like his plan because it encompasses the building of a new city hall, a convention center (which could be a remodel of the Civic Center) and a performance hall similar to the Chester Fritz in Grand Forks. All of which the city of Fargo is in need of and all of which will enhance downtown Fargo as a place on the go and as a place to go.
Downtown Fargo does provide the advantages that make such a venture feasible and ultimately successful. I congratulate this group for thinking “outside the box” and having developed a common-sense plan that possibly utilizes an existing structure for a convention center, adds a much needed stand-alone performance hall and replaces a much-needed city hall, all on the same campus.
I think this is a great plan that deserves a lot of consideration.
