Is the USACE an Accomplice in Fargo ND Land Grab? There are approximately 20,000 acres of land within Tiers 1 and 2 of Fargo’s development plan. Of this land, approximately 14,000 acres is within the present 100-year floodplain. Against FEMA warnings of flood plain encroachment, Fargo and Cass County ND continue their land grab in violation of ND Law and Executive Order 11988.

A large number of those at rest were pioneers who came to the Red River Valley following a dream, the promise of a homestead, and a fresh start at making a future for themselves and their families.
