The 2016 Woodley St. Reconstruction Project needs your input: online survey deadline is May 13

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

Consider it!

Rotary’s cogwheel logo has nothing to do with bicycling. However…

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.

A slightly different Locally Grown Northfield is emerging this spring

Grandpa Griff WigleyLoGro has mostly been dormant since early 2013 as I’ve focused on other things, mainly my blogging at Mountain Bike Geezer and CROCT (Cannon River Offroad Cycling & Trails).

But it’s back, with a slightly different focus.

I’ll continue to feature my photography of people, scenes, and events around Northfield. I’ll probably add more videos.

But I won’t be featuring my Northfield-related opinions related to local government (City, School District, County) as my consulting work (here and here) makes that a conflict of interest. I probably will shine a neutral light on current issues as a moderator of live web conferences with community leaders.  And I’m open to having opinionated guess bloggers.

So I’ll be experimenting. Contact me if you’ve got ideas, feedback, or an interest in contributing an issue-related guest blog post.

Follow @logronfld on Twitter and like the LoGro Facebook page as I publish all new blog posts on both. And subscribe to the weekly LoGro enewsletter, which includes all new blog posts and occasionally some extras. If you’re on Facebook and interested in my non-LoGro activities, see my personal Facebook profile.

And about those Google AdSense ads on the sidebars of the individual blog posts, Categories, and Archives?  I’m also experimenting. In the meantime, the measly revenue helps to support my local economic development activity at local pubs, coffeehouses, and bicycle shops.
