Moorhead river corridor plan earns award

MOORHEAD - American Planning Association Minnesota Chapter has named the Moorhead River Corridor Master Plan as the winner of its Planning in Context award for 2015.

MOORHEAD – The American Planning Association Minnesota Chapter has named the Moorhead River Corridor Master Plan as the winner of its Planning in Context award for 2015.

The plan was implemented to address the challenges and opportunities resulting from the city's acquisition of flood-prone properties adjacent to the Red River.

The plan, which was developed with a great deal of public participation, guides future management and maintenance of the river corridor, with attention to community needs, flood mitigation, transportation, recreation, public/private property and natural resource preservation and restoration.

The plan has already resulted in river corridor projects completed in 2014 and several projects underway in 2015 through partnerships with the River Keepers, Audubon Society and the Plains Art Museum.
