A proposed boathouse on the Grand Forks side of the Red River got the thumbs-up from the City Council last night.

A local group dedicated to outdoor activities plans to rent out canoes, kayaks, paddleboards and bikes. Ground Up Adventures chairman Andy Magness, says he's still raising money for the estimated 90,000 dollar project. He thinks there's still about 20,000 dollars left to raise. The facility could be ready to open as early as August.
