Fargo Growth Plan 2024 is an effort to provide the City of Fargo with updated direction on where to grow and how to grow in the coming decades. It will be Fargo’s first updated growth plan since the last one was adopted in 2007.

Fargo’s new growth plan will provide long-range guidance on land use and land development to the City of Fargo, its partner agencies, and the private sector. As with Fargo’s previous growth plans, it will be used to inform updates to the Land Development Code (LDC), aid the development of capital investment plans for services and utilities, shape future transportation plans, and guide the development of new programs and policies related to development and redevelopment.
