Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A committee charged with choosing a site for a new Fargo city hall has narrowed the choices down to about a dozen.

Committee members looked at a map of Fargo and applied stickers to what they believe to be ideal locations for a new city hall building.

While city leaders want to keep an open mind on the new location, talks favored keeping city hall in downtown Fargo.

Joe Burgum - Downtown Resident: "Having a space that is really powerful, once you come to Fargo and say, "What are we gonna see first? You gotta check out our city hall, you gotta check out this riverfront." Just the energy of activating this space here I think would bring Fargo to a whole other level."

In two weeks the committee will get on a bus and tour all possible locations for a new city hall building.
