A New Beginning for Downtown Thief River Falls
The TRF Downtown Development Association is worked on a summer project with the University of Minnesota to create a master plan for downtown Thief River Falls. The project consisted of three community workshops to gain feedback from the public, the meetings were held June 22, July 19 and August 17 at the Carnegie. To view the final masterplan, click here.
