GRAND FORKS, ND--Plans to place a 150 ton Northern Rose in Grand Forks will continue. The city council gave the go ahead last night for additional planning for the giant rock art project at the northeast corner of the Alerus-Canad Inn property just off 42nd Street.
Grand Forks sets aside a portion of its beautification funds each year for public art projects. Around 112-thousand dollars is currently available to assist with infrastructure development.
City Planner Brad Gengler says some site work for the project could take place this week .
Engineer estimates on construction of the foundation is around 50-thousand dollars. The goal is to install the 18-by-18 foot piece of granite in September.
