Upate, Noon: I contacted Northfield City Hall and got a prompt reply from City Administrator Nick Haggenmiller who wrote:
“I’m told our CSO [Community Service Officer] responded to a complaint noting the bike had been located there all winter. About a week ago, he put a sign on requesting the bike to be moved within 48 hours. Today as you well documented the bike was removed and is being held at the police station if/when its owner steps forward to claim it.”
Update 4pm: MPR’s NewsCut blog featured the video.
The 2016 Woodley St. Reconstruction Project blog site has launched. Yes, I’m a contractor to the City of Northfield for the online citizen engagement component so no opinions from me will be forthcoming.
But online citizen engagement has long been part of the mission of LoGro so I’ve got no qualms about urging y’all to participate.
There have been two community/neighborhood meetings thus far, with more scheduled in the next few weeks. I’ve posted meeting photos with the Powerpoint presentations on the blog.
The City’s Public Works Department has created the Woodley St. project questionnaire that’s open now through May 13. They’re seeking comments from all Northfield residents, in particular regarding:
- Sidewalks (1 side or both sides)
- Bike Lanes (1 side or both sides)
- Parking (1 side or both sides)
- Tree Removal
You can perform some maintenance on your bicycle with this bike repair stand on Division St. in front of the Northfield Public Library. There’s another one at 5th and Division. How did these come to be? See this Feb., 8, 2012 blog post.
The toy wagon in front of Judy’s Flower Market (part of Judy’s Floral Designs) on Division St. is sprouting flowers.
This planter is outside the Nutting Block building, Division St. near 3rd.
Rotary International and the Northfield Rotary Club‘s logo is a cogwheel (some background info here.) Northfield area bikers like me see more in it than that, especially when I ride across the Peggy Prowe Pedestrian Bridge to the Sechler Park Mountain Bike Trail, opened recently by CROCT (Cannon River Offroad Cycling & Trails) where I’m a board member. Thank you, Northfield Rotary, for all you do for bicycling in the area.
The Northfield Garden Club has adopted Bridge Square. See the City of Northfield’s Adopt-a-Park Program if you’d like to do likewise.
These women were blocking my view of downtown Northfield from my corner window office at Tandem Bagels last week. And one of them was a paparazzi. Among them: Mary Wood, Linelle Olson, and Jane McWilliams.
