Artists or architects wanting to redesign Broadway Square in downtown Fargo have just over a month to submit proposals.

The Broadway Square Design Competition deadline has been set for March 15.

The city's Broadway Square Committee is seeking concepts for the northeast corner of the Broadway and Main Avenue intersection, including public art, architecture and/or landscape architecture.

Collaborations between disciplines are encouraged.

Organizers already have received phone and e-mail inquiries from South America and Europe along with the United States and Canada. Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway donated the Broadway Square property.

The Broadway Square Design Competition also is offering a cash prize of $5,000 to be divided between the top three to five finalists of Phase 1. The winner of Phase 2 will be awarded the commission to implement the design.

Competition organizers anticipate about $300,000 to $500,000 will be available for the project. Construction will begin after fund raising.

For more information on the project visit the city's Web site, or call the Fargo Department of Planning and Development at (701) 241-1474.
