The Jefferson Park West master plan was created in 2007 as a collaboration with Jefferson Park Neighborhood Association, Fargo Parks District, and City of Fargo Planning Department.   The plan studied the existing facilities and the relation of the park to the neighborhood.  Realizing that the framework for the park is strong, the plan focused on recommendations to enhance the park for the neighborhood, specifically a phased planting plan and minor infrastructure improvements.  Attached is a copy of the master plan. 

In Fall 2007, an implementation plan was created to support the next steps of the master plan.  The implementation plan lists the recommendations from the master plan, defines long term and short term goals, and roles of the project team members. 

Park Plan

As the first step in the implementation plan, the Jefferson Park Neighborhood has applied for a Community Development Block Grant to design and construct an entry feature to the park. The entry feature will be located along 5th Avenue, between 21st St. S. and 18th St. S.  The purpose of the entry feature is to highlight the park entrance, frame the park views, create a look-out, and add a visual landmark to the neighborhood.  If funding is granted, the neighborhood, City, and Fargo Parks District can begin working together to finalize the construction plans and initiate construction in 2008.  Please keep tuned for more information on the neighborhood’s progress!  More volunteers will be needed to make this project a great success!
