Boundaries - by Streets
Bounded on the north by Fern Street and the section line between Sections 28 and 33. The southern boundary is defined by a line running due west from the intersection of 35th Street Northwest and Irvine Avenue Northwest to the North Country Regional Hospital, Irvine Avenue Northwest between 35th Street Northwest and Algoma Street Northwest, and a line running due east from the intersection of Irvine Avenue Northwest and Algoma Street Northwest to Lake Bemidji. The eastern boundary is defined by Lake Bemidji. The western boundary is defined by a north-south line set 500 feet to the west of Greenleaf Avenue Northwest.
