MOORHEAD — Moorhead residents are invited to take the Onward Moorhead survey to help strategize and enact the city's new comprehensive plan .

The plan, entitled Onward Moorhead, details the city's future issues, goals and visions for change over the next 10 years.

The plan will serve as a guide to help city leaders, developers, business owners and citizens make informed decisions about future growth, according to the city’s website.

Top priorities of the plan, named the “Five Big Ideas," were created after a year’s worth of input from Moorhead residents, according to the city. The plan's top priorities are to:

  • Transform Downtown Moorhead into the ‘heart of the community’
  • Integrate a mix of mutually supportive land uses and experiences
  • Connect neighborhoods to parks and trails and provide multimodal access to downtown
  • Embrace resilient environmental and equitable solutions
  • Build and nurture local businesses as key partners
