Fargo City Commission votes for separate task forces for downtown Civic Center and Convention Center

FARGO (KFGO-AM) -- Fargo City Commissioners have voted to create two separate task forces to further study a new convention center and to look into re-purposing the Civic Center into a performing arts hall.

Commissioners visited Washington Pavillion in Sioux Falls last week and saw how it could be a model for the centers future.

The meeting heated up when the topic of where a new proposed convention center would be located. Commissioner Mike Williams believes downtown would be a perfect location but Commissioner Dave Piepkorn thinks otherwise. He prefers the Fargodome, but he also thinks costs should be looked at and the general public should get the final vote.
