Time to get engaged: help develop a parking management plan for downtown Northfield

Parking Management Downtown Northfield

I warned y’all in my December 10 blog post, A lunch portends changes for LoGro. It’s now happening. I’ve got a contract with the City of Northfield, wearing my Wigley and Associates consulting hat, to create and manage the online platform for a City project: Developing a parking management plan for downtown.

That’s a link to the new blogsite for the project where all the activity will occur (not here on LoGro, which is why I’ve got comments turned off for this blog post.)

I’ll be teaming up with Ross Currier, Executive Director of the Northfield Downtown Development Corporation (NDDC).

I’m pretty excited about doing this, actually. I hope you Northfielders who follow things here on LoGro will participate there, not only to help create a downtown parking management plan but to help me and the City get better at managing public projects which need a significant amount of genuine citizen engagement.

See you over there!

    I plan to end the downtown parking straw poll tonight at midnight. So if you’ve not yet taken it, now’s the time:
    http://northfielddowntownparking.org/2013/01/28/take-the-northfield-downtown-parking-straw-poll/

    I’ll then blog the results, along with the submitted comments. We’ll then refer to it as needed when we started the focused blog discussion next week.

    Here are links to the most recent blog posts:
