City of Fargo Safe Routes to School Plan


In 2019, the Fargo-Moorhead Metropolitan Council of Governments, in coordination with the City of Fargo, is working with schools to create a Safe Routes to School (SRTS) plan. The plan will recommend how to make walking and biking to school easier, safer, and more comfortable for students and families. Recommended improvements will be made for all elementary and middle schools within the City of Fargo including West Fargo Public Schools, Fargo Public Schools, and Private Schools.


Please join us on one of the four dates shown to share your thoughts about walking and biking to school in Fargo. For more information, please visit the project website at

Bicycle-Friendly Communities

Creative Bike Rack Project

The Creative Bike Rack project, one of the City of Fargo’s public art initiatives, was officially launched in the downtown landscape on Sunday, June 24 at 1 p.m. Local artist and creator Jeff Knight engaged the local community for ideas and feedback during the place-making process. The design serves as a functional public art piece that brings awareness to the diversity of the community.
