In the Fargo-Moorhead Area, a project known as the FM diversion is being constructed to improve flood resiliency within the metro area. Looking to the outskirts of the metro area there are many rural communities that do not see the same benefit. This thesis will focus on a Regional Riverfront Park that will seek to develop a resilient system that increases community resiliency by combating the disruptions of flooding events of the river systems of the Red River. The 40-acre Riverfront Park is located by Mason ST by the Buffalo River and Red River. This will allow for the exploration of ideas that could be used as a precedent for other rural communities in the form of regional riverfront park. The project seeks to Enhance the Riverfront through resilient components that aid in bringing connectivity and support to the built, social, and natural systems. The components of resiliency; diversity, redundancy, network connectivity, modularity, and adaptability will be utilized as a framework to establish community resiliency by connecting the community and environment to the river.
