4 THINGS I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS YEAR (So far):

NORTH OF NORMAL FROSTIVAL The Fargo-Moorhead Convention and Visitor’s Bureau is holding its inaugural North Of Normal Frostival, a weekend at the end of January full of winter activities to get our community to embrace the winter months we’re stuck with. See page 65 for more information and a full schedule of events.

NEW YEAR,

BETTER

CITY

rowing up in Fargo, I definitely went through a phase of saying things to myself such as, “There’s nothing to do here,” and “I can’t wait to get out of this town.” However, I’m lucky that I’ve been able to stick around long enough to now think the complete opposite. Fargo-Moorhead is undergoing some serious growth and change that is for the better. I’ve realized that my hometown is growing to be one-of-akind and pretty awesome. Working with this magazine for well over a year has allowed me to witness first-hand the type of boom that’s happening in our area. Have you taken time to reflect back on how many restaurants and businesses

erica@spotlightmediafargo.com

opened their doors in 2015? The big construction projects that got underway? Or even the musical acts and events that came through? And that’s barely the tip of the iceberg. Yes, change can be scary and annoying, but at the end of the day, it’s all happening to make our city a better place to live. While it’s pretty obvious that nobody likes the never-ending construction and constant wait on new projects, it’s always satisfying to see the finished product. Personally, I’m quite interested to see what happens to Second Street and all of the Flood Diversion Plan construction this year. And, of course, bring on the new restaurants. With 2015 being such a booming year for our community, I don’t see things slowing down anytime soon and I can only imagine the great things that 2016 will bring us. This is the perfect time to embrace the community we live in and the changes it’s going through. Cheers to the New Year!

FOREIGNER AT THE SCHEELS ARENA I already know that I have to wait until April 10 for this one, and my excitement will be at full force until then. I grew up listening to Foreigner with my dad, so I’m looking forward to bonding over some nostalgic tunes and being a Jukebox Hero with him.

ROSEY’S When I heard that what used to be D’Vine would expand into the old Boerth’s gallery space to create a new dining establishment, my excitement soared. I am welcoming these new plans for a cheese and seafood market, grand piano bar and grilled cheese bistro with open arms and an eager appetite.

3

PRAIRIE ROOTS FOOD CO-OP Finally, the long-awaited Downtown Fargo grocery store is scheduled to open at the end of 2016. As a downtown resident, I’m eager to have a grocery store close to home and to see the positive impact this co-op has on the community.

T'S NO SURPRISE that our area is a hotspot for growth and development. How much of that will extend into the new year? We took some of your burning questions and asked a few of the folks that know the city best about what will be happening in our community this year. What do you think Fargo-Moorhead has in store for 2016? The answers you've been dying to know lie in these pages. *​Disclaimer: Questions and answers have been edited for clarity.

YOU ASKED

TIM MAHONEY FARGO MAYOR

W

e don’t need to tell you about the growth in Fargo. As one of the fastest growing economies in the country, we talked with the man ensuring the city runs effectively and efficiently.

20


Q&A

THEY ANSWERED

One thing that's the hot buzz around Fargo is the entrepreneurial scene. Talk about your vision for it. “We had a mayor's conference, just to tell other mayors in the state of North Dakota what we're doing. It was really fun to listen to the other mayors when they said, 'I did not realize all this was going on in Fargo.' Even (Doug) Burgum had to admit, if he had done Great Plains Software in downtown, it might have more energy because you have to mix people together and get a lot of the energy. I'm very excited about the amount of young people who are coming into the community who have so much more to offer. We're not the Silicon Valley. I guess we're called the Silicon Prairie.”

Talk about the development of downtown and the Kilbourne Group buying so many buildings there. I know last year, we talked about affordable housing downtown. "What we're seeing is a lot more projects going on here between University Drive and downtown. You'll see a lot more apartment complexes going in. You see the Woodrow Wilson going in. Across from there, there's another apartment complex going in. I've seen a lot more infill going on between those two areas. We hope we'll get more affordable housing. We're going to look at other ways this next year. Maybe, when you have a new apartment complex, you limit the rents to a certain rate for 15 percent of the apartments so you get more of a mixed use in our apartment areas. “The downtown area, even talking to Kilbourne, we never talked about parking before. We now have a parking plan. The parking lot plan is coming forward. City Hall should start construction next year. I think

you'll see the riverfront explode. More projects will come into the riverfront in the next two to three years. Before we just didn't have that energy. Once you have that floodwall, it's safer to build and people feel more comfortable.”

The Fargo One app, which allows citizens to communicate issues such as potholes directly to the city, is pretty exciting and interesting. Are people using it? (People can download it from the App store.) "I've been really pleased about it because, in fact, I went into it early on and there's a construction site down by Timberline and construction took out some trees so we had some pretty mature trees in the boulevard. I did the One app and within two weeks, I had a response on that so I knew what happened, they corrected the problem and then they showed me pictures of the new trees. It was really interesting.”

Our readership is the young, active demographic. Is there anything you'd like to say to our readers? "I'd like to say to them, Fargo is a growing city. I think we have a lot and you can all contribute to it. To me, look at some things you can do to make the city better. In any way you think there's a way to improve it, let's look to that. We all have to have community pride. The people, Fargo, make the city their city.”

What are your New Year’s Resolutions for Fargo? "Number one is to get City Hall going in the spring and get that project done. Find out what would work for everybody and let's

Look at some things you can do to make the city better. In any way you think there's a way to improve it, let's look to that.'' get that building. You go over to the old City Hall and it's cold sometimes, warm sometimes, it's a small space. You walk into Gate City Bank and it's just wonderful. You can see how people can be productive. "The second thing is the diversion. We'd like to move that forward. We've set some goals for the group. I'd like to see us continue to move forward on that. The legislative body gave us some money to spend on flood projects, $120 million. We'd like to continue to work on projects throughout the city to make us safer from floods. It's just like now, we feel pretty good. It's a mild winter, but the closer you get to spring, people get a little anxiety if there's too much water or what's going to happen. It'd be really nice to be like Grand Forks where you really don't have to worry about spring floods because you know you can handle it."

DEL RAE WILLIAMS

YOU ASKED

MOORHEAD MAYOR

E

xpecting to grow its population by one-third this decade, Moorhead is booming. From housing to downtown to railroads, Moorhead mayor Del Rae Williams fills us in on what’s happening in her quiet, little town that was recently named Best Small City in America by NerdWallet.

23


Q&A

THEY ANSWERED

Talk about the growth the city is experiencing. “We've been planning for up to 90,000, which sounds like a lot. The population is about 43,000 right now. We were 38,000 in 2010; we're around 43,000 right now. I don't think we'll do all the 90,000, but you need to do a little long-range planning, and I think it's the right time. Last decade, we grew about 18 percent. I'm kind of thinking we'll double that this decade when it's done. We're doing really good. I would expect, as we always do with new schools coming in, that we'll continue it through the end of the year, which would mean some significant growth. I know of a number of things that are already going to happen in 2016 so there's no reason to think that it would stop.”

Let’s talk about getting around in Moorhead. It can be really difficult to be on Main Avenue with the trains. What are you doing to improve that? “I'm pretty sure we're going to get some funding for the railroads next year. We'll be doing two big projects that will mess up our roads a bit so that will be kind of a pain. One is called the SIMS project, which makes the areas by the railroads turn lanes, which makes them a lot more moving. The other will be the underpass. It will be huge for us. It's the main underpass that people go into Moorhead on. It's on 8th Street and I-94. They're going to do a really interesting way where you don't actually stop. The traffic will just flow because it's a bottleneck now."

Moorhead saw an 11 percent growth in the number of housing units. You offer a variety of incentives for new homebuyers, which can be viewed at makemoorheadhome.com. Do you think these incentives are helping your population boom?

I would like the public to be more involved in not just knowing what is going on, but being part of that decision-making.”

"No doubt. I think we'll probably continue that. Fargo's is very similar. Even right now, we have more units then we did last year or the year before. It's interesting. It might be a record breaker since 2000.”

Moorhead is about 20 square miles, which is about 2,000 people a square foot. Have you reached the border and are you going to build inward? "We're going to try and do infill. That we can easily do for the next number of years so we don't have to jump at adding a trunk line. That was one of the clearer things we were wondering about. It'll probably be

before I'm done with my stint. Part of our discussion will be where it will be and how we'll fund it.”

How do you feel about how Downtown Moorhead is doing?

"It's going in the right direction. Every now and then, there will be a little glitch, but, for the most part, it's going in the right direction. We'll probably have a downtown business corporation. I envision it'll probably start next year. That will help things get more focused. Earlier this year, we did a special downtown incentive piece. It's comparable to Fargo's, but did not market it.”

Are the incentives still going on?

"Yeah. They're still going. It didn't really matter. It didn't make the news. That's how that works, but that's OK. Once they're ready to start marketing it, it'll be there for when people are ready. I regularly get phone calls about where the things are in our downtown. I think if there's the right development, there will be the businesses."

Anything fun coming up?

“We have a new 250-person shelter that's going to be in MB Johnson, so we'll be able to do a number of things we haven't been doing. It's a really, really pretty area that's sort of, I guess, a secret area. Unless people go up there, they wouldn't know.”

What are your New Year's Resolutions for Moorhead in 2016?

“How do I involve the community in our decision making so that they become more and more a part of it? People will tell me that they are more, but there's always room for growth in there. I would like the public to be more involved in not just knowing what is going on, but being part of that decision-making."

YOU ASKED

RICH MATTERN

WEST FARGO MAYOR

W

ith a city expected to grow its population by one-third to 45,000 by 2040, West Fargo Mayor Rich Mattern has some unique challenges to face. As the mayor of North Dakota’s fifthlargest city, Mattern and his city are preparing and planning for the growth of West Fargo.

26


Q&A

THEY ANSWERED

How was 2015 for West Fargo? “The big news for us was that we added a new police building. We are remodeling some administrative offices and areas where the police moved out. We moved inspections in there and we’re remodeling it. The police department turned out really, really nice. With that, we also have new commission chambers with state-of-the-art technology. The old commission chambers will stay where they’re at, but it’ll stay strictly for court. “The growth was good. Evolution One is coming. We finished Harley Davidson. The big news, too, last year is that Bobcat has had their international headquarters in West Fargo for years. They’re doing a huge expansion project. “On the downside for us, and I would think that all the other mayors in the metro area would agree with me, is that the big problem is still the work-force. Boy, not too long ago, I went to Sanford

The day of the kids wanting a strip mall, those are gone. They’re into parks. ... They’re into health and wellness.''

Health. They did an update on how their hospital is doing. Sounds to me, if you have any sort of degree that is at all related to the health care industry, you have a job. I’m finding that out too with Trail Kings and Caterpillar. They’re really hurting for labor and they’ll even throw in some money for education. That problem is not going to go away. There are a lot of groups working on that. Hopefully, we can turn that around.”

Getting a water treatment plant has been a problem for West Fargo. Last year, you reached a deal to buy water from Fargo for $3.25 per 1,000 gallons. Talk about that process. “That created some controversy because it all came down to choice and money. We got a good deal from Fargo. God bless them, they came through for us. What I thought is that we should have had was a choice. The State Water Commission said, ‘We’re not going to give you permission to drill wells because you’re mining the aquifer.’ That’s perfectly fine, but what’s the alternative? It all pointed that Fargo got money to hook us up to them. It seemed like an unfunded mandate and we were given no choice. I think we should have been given choices. We could build a water treatment plant, but for us, as a city, there was no way we could afford it. We got pushed to Fargo.”

As the new Sanford hospital opens up in 2017, are you confident you’ll keep growing? “Yes. For years, West Fargo considered itself a bedroom community. To an extent, it was. Retail was not heavily pushed, so West Fargo was retail-poor. There’s supposed to be a balance. We’ve been adding businesses and retail

like crazy, but we’re still retail-poor because we’ve built so many houses and so many people have come to town. “Denny Walaker and I were the ceremonial ones to drive together over the Veteran’s Boulevard Bridge at that interchange. As we were driving down that road, we were looking at each other like, ‘Big road, no population.’ Of course, we drove all the way to the other end, and there were no cars there except our car that we were in. Now look at it. It’s incredible.

Make the case why the active young professionals should come and spend their money in your city. “That’s an excellent question. It has weighed heavily on my mind for years. You’re absolutely right. God bless them, Fargo is finally getting it right downtown. It’s cool. I get that. Everybody wants to live downtown. Right now, what I’m seeing that is not good is I think some of the developments and apartments are pricing themselves out of the market. “The day of the kids wanting a strip mall, those are gone. They’re into parks. They’re into bike paths. They’re into health and wellness. They’re still into drinking. We’re working hard on keeping that momentum going. We added a lot of liquor stores, bars and those kinds of things. We just keep adding and adding bike paths and parks. To me, I know that people say, ‘I’m moving to Minneapolis because there’s so much more to do.’ Statistics show that people go from point A to point B, which is your home to your work place, and stop at what’s in between for entertainment, groceries, gas and all that. They don’t really stray all that as much as you think. To me, between point A and point B, there has to be some good stuff in between.”

YOU ASKED

DAVID TODD

FARGO POLICE DEPT. ­— CHIEF OF POLICE

W

hen he joined the Fargo Police Department 28 years ago, Chief David Todd never thought he would be sitting in the position he is now. Since permanently taking over as the chief of police in October 2015, Todd has been determined to make the police department a better place.

28


Q&A

THEY ANSWERED

What are some of the shortterm goals for 2016 you’re trying to accomplish now that you’re in charge? “Going forward here, I’m trying to take some time to get the right people in the right seats of the bus, with their talents and skills and get my command staff formed. Come January 18, we’re going to make that transition where people are going to move to their assigned positions, and then we’ll move forward from there with our strategic plan. It’s a three-to-five-year strategic plan for the police department on things we need to accomplish. “One is getting a commitment toward a personnel plan, so that we can grow with the city. When I submitted the 2016 budget proposal, I submitted a 10-year plan, provided that the city continues to grow as

it’s been growing, which is at 3,500 people per year. I’d like to see some type of commitment toward that plan. I think that’s possible.

How will the Fargo Police Department tackle the growth that our community is seeing and the crime that comes with that growth? “It’s always important for us to stay on top of it. That’s part of one of the reasons why I initiated the street crime multi-agency team - to crush it on the front end. Because if you’re playing catch-up, you never catch up. Once gangs get established here, they don’t leave. They’re here. It’s been very successful so far, and Moorhead will be coming on board with it at the beginning of the year as well. So then we’ll have Fargo, West Fargo, Cass County, Clay County and Moorhead all on board with people dedicated toward that.”

Is the police department going to be taking advantage of any new technology this year? Body cameras with law enforcement are a popular topic right now.

My ultimate goal for this job is to leave it a better place. If I can say that at the end of my time here, whenever that may be, I couldn’t ask for anything more.”

“Well, the other big ticket item this year is radios. Right now the radio system we have for the police department – the end of life for the system is the end of 2018. All of law enforcement, the fire departments, dispatch and medics all need to start looking at changing over to a new radio system. “Body cameras are something that we’ve been researching and looking at. For our department to move to body cameras, it would probably have a startup cost of a quarter of a million dollars. When I look at that and I look at our personnel situation, my priority goes toward the personnel situation. I need to get to a point where I can staff every beat in the city, every day, every shift. And when I can do that, I also

need to look at our detectives. When I feel like we have things situated personnel-wise a little better, I’d look at big-ticket items like body cameras."

In light of recent events around the nation, there’s been a growing sense of distrust toward law enforcement. Is your department aware of this, and if so, how do you combat that? Other than keeping up with crime, it’s also really important for us to maintain a relationship with the community. When you look at what’s happening in the rest of the country and the ill-will toward law enforcement. The constant media stories. You look at that and you say ‘I don’t want that to happen here. What do we need to do to keep that from happening here?’ We really have focused on reaching out to our community to establish trust and transparency. If you look at our Facebook page, we try to push positive stories about what the officers are doing out there so that people understand that it’s not just the enforcement aspect, but there’s a human element to being a police officer also.”

What would you say is your ultimate long-term goal with your role as chief ? “Ultimately, I just want this to be a happy and healthy place to work. We’ve had some issues in the past few years before I took over, where it wasn’t a happy and healthy place to work. I guess my style of leadership is encouraging people to be creative, getting out there to try your ideas and as a leader, not being threatened by that. My ultimate goal for this job is to leave it a better place. If I can say that at the end of my time here, whenever that may be, I couldn’t ask for anything more.”

JOE NIGG

YOU ASKED

CITY OF FARGO ­— CITY PLANNER

O

n top of being heavily involved in the GO2030 Fargo Comprehensive Plan, one of the projects that Joe Nigg is working closely on is figuring out the best way to combat parking issues in Downtown Fargo, as well as how to properly market and communicate the system in order to make it less of a challenge for both residents and visitors.

31


THEY ANSWERED

Q&A

Downtown parking has been a hot topic of discussion lately. Can you talk about any changes with parking that might be happening this year? “In 2016, I think the big change is just going to be how we handle enforcement downtown. With that, we’d have the warning citations and the graduated fee structure that will come into play as well, but I think the message there is that we’re going to more of a parking ambassador approach. Going forward, you know, maybe they do a little bit of enforcement because you

GO TO FARGOMONTHLY.COM TO READ THE FULL INTERVIEW.

have to, but maybe it’s also pointing somebody in the right direction, having that additional presence on the street from a security standpoint, maybe picking up a little garbage along the way… it’s more of a parking ambassador duty versus just a parking ticket-writing system. I think that’s a big one in my eyes from a facility and capacity standpoint. We’re not after you to give you as many tickets as possible. It’s more like, let’s work with you to find a spot so that you don’t get a parking ticket and you can spend more time downtown. “We also have new pay stations that are out. You could pay for someone else’s parking, if you have clients, and give them a validation code for a certain lot. Again, we’re going to be backing off on the enforcement side, so hopefully there isn’t as much ticket writing happening in the downtown core. “I think another key thing this year will be getting proposals for the parking ramp structures. Right now we have our eyes on a location at Second Avenue North and Roberts Street that would be an integrated parking structure with approximately 400 parking spaces. There’s also potential for more mixed-use development on Fourth Avenue North and Broadway. That would unfold in 2016 as well. So I think those are the key things going forward.”

Do you see any changes with public transportation this year when it comes to making the process easier and appeal to more riders? “We’re trying to build that transit capacity in terms of trying to get choice riders to use MATBUS. I think, you know, what is showing is that there is a gap we need to close. Right now if you wanted to

hop on the bus, you’ve either got to have cash in your pocket or a ticket already purchased. If there’s a way where you can handle an electronic transaction or be able to use your smartphone, think of all the choice riders that maybe don’t have to use transit, they might just want to use it a couple of times a week. So Mike (Williams) and a few others have been researching a few apps that could help with that and looking at what other cities are doing.”

With all of the big development projects going on and making headway in 2016, what do you think the City of Fargo will be focusing on the most? “One thing that I think will be a big effort in 2016 is this downtown master plan and city center comprehensive plan, GO2030. It’s a 20-year blueprint to guide public infrastructure and investment going forward. The city will be looking for some type of dynamic consulting group to come in and really lead this effort with things such as how we’re going to handle and fund parking downtown, market data, infill and land use, management operations, economic development. … Parking alone is obviously a major economic component to the downtown area. That’s a conversation that needs to be had at the community level. To what degree do we want to push the envelope to get our downtown area to the next level?”


YOU ASKED

JADE NIELSEN JADE PRESENTS

W

ith a new events center and an expanded Bluestem lineup, Jade Nielsen, President and Founder of Jade Presents, is excited about 2016. Hoping to reach more than 100 acts this year, Nielsen talked about bringing national acts to Fargo, upcoming shows and security at events.

34


Q&A

THEY ANSWERED

The new Sanctuary Events Center in Downtown Fargo is opening this year. It has a capacity for more than 600 people. What will that do for concerts in town? “The Fargo market hasn’t had, what I would term, a mid-sized club. Really, there’s never been a mid-size club – a good facility where you can do both 21 plus shows, all ages shows, have the ability to serve, have good acoustics and have all the amenities needed. This market’s never had that option. It fills a void in what’s been needed here for a long time. I expect that we’ll be busy in that room, probably doing somewhere between three to five events a month.”

When do you hope to start booking for Sanctuary? “We’re planning an open date of July 1. I’m sure we’ll have a bit of a grand opening and some opening concerts.”

You’ve been doing this a long time now. Is it easier to get artists through Fargo? “It depends on the tour and it depends on the agent. There are some agents that still really don’t consider the Dakotas at all something that they’re going to send their acts through. At the same time, we’ve been able to make a lot of headway in getting those agents and acts to try the Fargo market once and, with success, they’ll consider it again.”

The Bluestem Amphitheatre is such a cool venue. Is that an easy sell to artists that are coming through? “It’s a larger venue, but artists and agents all make decisions based on the criteria I already gave you.

It’s either, ‘We want to play these smaller markets or we don’t.’ Bluestem is no different. We ended up producing 10 shows last year. Moving forward into this next summer, we’re going to expand that. I think we’ll be probably close to 20 shows out there this summer. Obviously, the final number will depend on routing and all those other factors. It’ll be the same type of variety that we did where there will be some country, some rock, some pop and some more oldies acts.”

Is there anything you’re particularly looking forward to in 2016? “The Sanctuary opening will be big for a number of reasons that I sort of stated already. To get a facility of that size is phenomenal. The Bluestem season is going to be expanded and I think it’s going to be a big hit again. We’re going to continue what we do at the Scheels Arena and the Fargo Theatre. “The other thing that I hope is coming down, but I don’t know if it’ll happen in 2016. My hope is that we’ll be able to transform that Civic Auditorium into more of a true performance space. Obviously, we don’t have a timeline for that. My hope is that the city will be able to pull some things together and that the community will really want that.”

After the terrorist attacks at an Eagles of Death Metal show in Paris, France by ISIS, is security on the top of your mind at your shows? “Yeah. That rings close to home because, even though we haven’t worked with Eagles of Death Metal, we had worked with other bands that those members are part of. Robby Fraser, their agent, is somebody I work with a lot. We just did Jack White with him last year. There are a lot of connections to that situation that concern me.

I think all of the promoters worldwide are taking a closer look at security after something like (the Paris terrorists attacks).'' “I think all of the promoters worldwide are taking a closer look at security after something like that happens. I don’t know if that could have ever been prevented. If you think about it, three people walk into a venue with machine guns. Obviously, they had security at the gates, but what are they going to do against three guys with machine guns? Security, in general, I think needs to be looked at and readdressed, but that is such a freak incident that I’m not sure if there’s any way to prevent that unless you literally have military personnel in front of every venue in the country. It’s an area of concern. It’s something we think about, but I don’t think any of us have an answer on how to prevent something that absurd happening.”

M

in-town protection, we’re probably 60 percent complete with what’s diversion related. And the work that’s being completed on the diversion itself - buying land in Oxbow and along the 36 miles, the farmland acquisition – that goes underway. You won’t see digging on the channel for many years. “There’s a lot of this preparatory work and real protection for the City of Fargo is critical because for one thing, it gets more investment, especially in the downtown area. Not having permanent protection has cost us, because investors were leery about having a clay dike protect us. And now that we’re fixing it, we see more interest in downtown investment and any investment along those protected areas, homes included.”

The Fargo One app just recently launched. What type of feedback are you seeing? Has it been successful so far? “It is working. It’s been a great opportunity for residents to reach out to us in an easier fashion. We thought we’d be getting lots of requests to fill potholes, but it’s actually been an interesting mix of things like snow removal or lights that are out and things like that. You can also pay your utility bill or parking tickets and check garbage pickup dates. We’ve made it really user friendly so you can do all of your business on it. So far it’s been great. “We’re also trying to let people know that it can be used for those coming from out of town as well, because it also has a neat little section where it tells you about all of the things that are around you. Residents or others can learn their way around.”

What type of changes will be happening in 2016 with public transportation to make it easier and appeal to more riders? “We’ve tripled the transit ridership in the last 11 years now, but one of the areas we’re focusing on is to make it more user friendly for folks that maybe just want to use it once in awhile. Our transit coordinator is looking at some apps, a standalone app that other cities are using like CapMetro in Austin, Texas. You could buy a day pass right on your phone and you can show the driver your pass and you’re good to go. That way you don’t have to go to the station or worry about money. It can show you in real time where the bus is with GPS. Those are some of the ways to make things user-friendly."

What are your thoughts on city expansion with the current growth rate? Is it better to build out or up? "Just for perspective, in 1960 we had 47,000 people and there were eight total sections of land. Now, we have 115,000 people with 50 sections of land. So we have 2.4 times the number of people but six times the amount of land. The amount of land we’ve been growing into hasn’t been much larger than our population growth. Part of the idea is that the Southern area is hard to protect and we still don’t have real protection on the south side of town. It’s in our benefit to protect the areas we have. Just by adding one person per acre of what we do have, we’d have enough land for our projected population growth by 2040. We don’t have to add skyscrapers. All we need to do is fill in some of these areas.”

Q&A

THEY ANSWERED

The Flood Diversion project is huge in the downtown area right now, especially along Second Street North. Can you elaborate on what that will start to look like this year and in the future with the new City Hall project? “The greenway gets expanded because everything has to move west. Old Second Street was too close to the river and parts of it were actually starting to slump in. It’s moving about one-third into

the civic parking lot, so it will bend around and be on the dry side of the floodwall. It will shift over, but still connect to where it goes under the railroad tracks and bridges, those will all still be there and tie back into those locations. So you’ll have the floodwall, Second Street and then the city civic plaza area. What that does then is give us an expanded greenway where those trails are, so I’ve been working with a few others to try and maximize that space for recreation or amenities.”

How do we go about tackling the growth that we keep seeing each year? Is it more beneficial to expand out or up?

We’re going to have a lot of public outreach and it’s really a strategic effort on behalf of the city and the community together.''

“I think this is definitely a topic for 2016 for a number of reasons. One, primarily, because there’s just not a lot of green for developments that are easy to service. So developers are getting more creative in looking for what we call underdeveloped properties in the Fargo region. Properties that might not have been lucrative to develop even five years ago within town, those properties are starting to come to our table with proposals and ideas. I think as we grow, it’s a matter of where are people going to live, build and work. Our city limit is only a certain size, so to fill and kind of keep building and growing … one of the only things to do is to start growing upward. We’ll still be going outward some, but that availability of land – we have constraints right now on all sides of the city limits unless they’re going to go to another city. Really, our job as planners is to make choices that are easy and accessible for everybody.”

Do you see the use of more mixed-use buildings included in future expansion, especially with upward expansion or reaching out to the city limits? “For the GO2030 in our long-range planning, one of the things that really stuck out to me is the disparity between where jobs are located and where housing is located. Really, you can see a diagonal line between where our industrial parks are on the Western side of the city and then the housing on the Eastern part of the city. The idea is to not have such a strict line there and kind of intermix those. Mixed-use could also be by the land and not necessarily by the building. You might see an office building next to an apartment building and those types of things closer to each other in the future.”

Aside from some of the initiatives in the GO2030 plan, is there anything else the City of Fargo will be focusing on in 2016? “I think the other thing we’ll probably see more of is just more work on development codes to allow for more flexibility for different types of development. Right now our code talks about one kind of a development … say you look at the Main Avenue corridor and somebody wants to redevelop there. It’s really difficult right now because our codes don’t really talk to these “what if” situations, so you have to do a lot of custom planning work with each different property owner. We have some different task forces and committees that will be working on different policy changes this year. "We’re going to have a lot of public outreach and it’s really a strategic effort on behalf of the city and the community together. We’re all pretty excited about it.”

Original brick walls will be exposed to create an "al fresco" feel of an alley space, and the patio space will be utilized during the summer months. The new concept will be more casual than Monte's, but will still offer an elevated style of cuisine that fans will love. 220 Broadway N, Fargo

Food

Trends & beyond By Eric Watson | Photo by Andrew Jason

The

food scene in Fargo is certainly a bit behind major metropolitan cities of America. But then again, every city has a right to set its own trends and individual style. Food trends, after all, are typically based on something that individual chefs set in motion. It’s up to independent thinking folks to decide for themselves if it will stay or go.

Butternut squash stuffed poblano chile and sesame basmati rice with red cabbage slaw, watercress, beech mushrooms and miso sauce. This is an example of some of the vegan dishes available at Mezzaluna and Rustica.

O

ne thing I’ve always loved about Fargo is that folks here oftentimes reject food trends from other parts of the country. On the other hand, one thing I’ve always disliked about Fargo is that folks here oftentimes reject food trends from other parts of the country. I appreciate the continued appreciation for tried and true culinary concepts, yet I am frustrated by everyone’s reluctance to try new things. Take goat meat, for example. It tastes like lamb, it’s delicious and it’s incredibly affordable, so why is there so much hesitation with eating goat meat? With that said, here are some of my personal thoughts on where the culinary trends are headed for 2016 and beyond. These thoughts are based both on my own personal work routine as well as national data.

Ethnic Flavors and Ingredients

This, of course, includes dishes with goat meat: in addition to African and Middle Eastern spices and cooking concepts. Indian and Thai are still building in popularity in our area but other ethnic restaurants are being introduced.

Vegetarianism

This is kind of a bad word in parts of the Midwest. We love our meat. Honestly though, eating less meat and more vegetables is not only an obvious way to improve your health, but it’s also a big movement among professional chefs and restaurateurs across the country. In addition, most chefs would agree that it’s good for overall sustainability.

Total Food Utilization

A concept that has been well practiced in other parts of the world for years, but just recently is resurfacing here in the American mainstream. Vegetables and meats alike are being utilized to their fullest potential, and not just for their most visually appealing portions.

Artisan Butchery and Inventive Cuts of Meat

Filet Mignon, Rib Eye and New York Strips are just as popular in the Midwest as they ever were but other interesting cuts have made their way into the mainstream as well: hanger steak, beef tongue, pork collar, pork brisket and more. Chefs are also making an effort to get back to butchering basics.

Underutilized Seafood

If it’s not halibut, salmon, shrimp or tuna, it may not sell in our market. I appreciate the consumer who is willing to try a fish they haven’t heard of before. Sustainable seafood is as important as ever, and please don’t continue to vilify farm-raised fish without having all the facts first. I could write an entire column on that issue alone. These are a few food topics that I believe will be receiving mention in our market in the next several years. I, of course, kept it pretty safe and didn’t get to go out there. That’s because I believe in one absolute food trend: good food and good service will always beat out the new trend. That’s a fact that keeps ringing true year after year.

EMBRACE THE

Frost JANUARY 29TH - 31ST

​Get excited for the North of Normal Frostival

e've all heard it before:

By Erica Rapp Photos courtesy of the Fargo-Moorhead Convention and Visitor's Bureau

Fargo-Moorhead is a desolate, frozen wasteland during the winter months, and it's a mystery to outsiders how we manage to survive the harsh cold. Well, it's time for that to change. Since we can't do anything about the conditions that Mother Nature so graciously gives us, the Fargo-Moorhead Convention and Visitor's Bureau has found a way for the community to beat the winter doldrums and embrace the cold instead of apologizing for it. "Often, we give in to the myths by our apologetic natures when

it comes to our weather. We do this even though many of us do not mind the few extremely cold weeks that tend to happen a couple times during the winter in light of all the wonderful weather and wholesome community we have yearround," said Stephonie Broughton of the FMCVB. On that note, bundle up for the first-ever North of Normal Frostival, where the entire community will be able to participate in free winter wonderland activities and competitions over the course of a weekend. The goal is to first turn citizens into the biggest

advocates for the community, whether it's living here or visiting. Other goals are to use the event as a catalyst to attract people to our area to either live here and fill our growing job market or to visit and spend money locally. This event is a great way to show love for where you live just by participating in a weekend full of fun outdoor activities. So, are you in? The cold shouldn't bother you anyway. Schedule of events

“There’s beauty in

everything."

West Fargo native and Minnesota State University Moorhead student Tyler Evin has decided to dedicate his life to two things: art and education. But, like life in general, his road there has been a journey. By Drew Balstad // Photo by Paul Flessland

74 | JANUARY 2016 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


B

eginnings

Growing up, Evin was interested in art at an early age. He's been drawing for as long as he can remember, but he didn’t take any art classes until 8th grade and continued them through high school. From early on, however, he found his interests leading him down a path that would guide him to the work he currently creates. “Ever since I can remember, I’ve been drawing people. I haven’t really been drawing anything else. My passion is to work with the human figure and the human form," said Evin. He is currently pursuing a double major in studio art with an emphasis in painting and art education.

Art Education

Before he ever decided that painting was something he wanted to pursue seriously, Evin had the idea of becoming an art teacher. He got a job at an after school program teaching art to kids, a job that he realized had moved him as an individual. "I just loved going to work and working with youth and helping them work out different problems that they had. The art teacher in school is viewed more as a mentor than a teacher,” Evin said. “I love art, and now I’m finding that I’m loving working with kids and youth. I decided to pursue art education.”


Finding His Medium

The classes at MSUM opened up a new world to Evin as an artist. He was able to work with oil paints for the first time. He described starting to use oil paints, instead of acrylic paints, as “frustrating” at first. The paint didn’t dry as fast, and it took a lot of practice to become proficient. Now, however, he says it’s the only type of paint he’s interested in working with. It was also during a painting class at MSUM, where the class was assigned to do an abstract painting, that Evin had his light bulb moment. Though he’d seen abstract

work before and knew, as a concept, how to do it, it wasn’t until that project that he truly understood the freedom it gave him as an artist. “Once we got going with that abstract stuff, I was like, ‘Wow I can make something and it doesn’t have to be anything. It comes from whatever I’m feeling. It doesn’t have to represent anything,'” Evin said. “Once I got here and did that abstract project, it was liberating.”

Advice to aspiring Artists

1

Don’t take anything personally. Someone else’s opinion isn’t a negative thing.

2

Always keep practicing. Set a schedule and stick to it. Make sure that you’re always creating something. It doesn’t have to be a masterpiece.

3

Find a mentor. Find someone who you can trust and take their advice.

4

Take chances. Try things related to art, and art-making, that you might not be comfortable with at first, whether it be a different media or process.

5

Don't be afraid of failure. It will happen as an artist, but take those opportunities to learn from them.


GO A&E

Creative Process

The freedom that abstraction gives him allows Evin to find inspiration everywhere. “There’s beauty in everything you look at if you just take the time to really look,” Evin said. “And everywhere I go, everyone I meet, I can find inspiration for projects or paintings.” However, after inspiration strikes, there has to be a story. “Whenever I’m thinking about doing anything artistic related, I always have to think, ‘What story do I want to tell?’ Because, I feel like as artists we’re story tellers,” Evin said. Evin generally works from a photo reference of the subject he’s painting, but doesn’t put much emphasis

on making sure that every detail in the photo is accurate; he puts his own spin on the subject. Evin thinks about the composition and colors he wants to use to tell the story that’s in his head. Things don’t always go smoothly, however. “One of the frustrating parts about being an artist is, you always have this grand idea in your head about what the final thing is going to be. Most of the time you get a few bumps in the road and then it turns out good, but

it’s not exactly what you had in your head. I don’t beat myself up on it,” Evin said. “It’s always going to be better in your head than what you can do.” What is in his head, and what he as an artist is trying to say, doesn’t mean that’s exactly what he wants the viewer to get out of it, however. “I like to leave things ambiguous. I let the viewer decide and let them kind of interpret it for themselves because everyone is going to have a different reaction with what they look at and what they see,” Evin said. “I like that.”

Facebook: "Tyler Evin Fine Art"

Future

With Evin’s dual passions for education and painting, his future plans are unclear. He said his hope is to pursue painting full-time, while also teaching on the side. “I have such a passion for painting, and such a passion for helping others too,” Evin said. “I just wish that they could work together.”

015 had big impact on our startup community. 2016 is poised to be a year historians look back on and credit for an explosion of growth and opportunity. It's very possible it could be a year where a collaboration between a college student and a seasoned veteran is established, a year when an artist partners with a developer to launch something transformational or the stay-at-home mom partners with a local shop to introduce a new product. I'm convinced it will be a year when new concepts are introduced and ideas come to life. Much of this activity and collaboration will be facilitated by events and gatherings. Do you want to be part of the story? Part of history? If so, here are five events you can't afford to miss.
