I noticed on Thursday that the back of the May NEG (not yet online) had a blurb about the new Go! Northfield website launched by the Northfield Grassroots Transit Initiative and hosted at Northfield.org. The project got $1,500 from the EDA back in Feb:
Suzie Nakasian approached the EDA with a funding request from the Northfield Grassroots Transit Initiative. The group has created a collection site of all transportation options available for residents and visitors alike. The funds would be used to assist in public outreach/publicity campaign including the use of a Spanish language editor, brochure and poster printing in both English and Spanish, and radio and newspaper advertising.
Today’s Nfld News has more details
, though once again (sigh), they don’t link to the new site (they don’t link to the new site in body of the article, but they do provide a link in the right sidebar): New website provides easy access to public transit options:
According to Northfield Grassroots Transit Initiative founding member Suzie Nakasian, the website helps fulfill some of the group’s goals, which include decreasing private vehicle usage and increasing mobility of the car-less. The Northfield Grassroots Transit Initiative was formed by Northfield community members in 2008 after a group of Carleton College students and the organization Growing Up Healthy simultaneously held events to raise awareness about transportation and poverty.
Update May 1, 6:15 am: I’ve corrected the text above, noting that the Northfield News article does link to the go.northfield.org site. They don’t link to the new site in body of the article, but they do provide a link in the right sidebar. See this screenshot with arrows/notations (right-click and open in a new tab to view a full-size version of the screenshot).
