State Senator Kevin Dahle posted a Mill Towns Trail update to his blog a few weeks ago, having attended a recent meeting of “trail faithful.”
There are 3 projects on the horizon. A bridge will be erected across the Cannon River in Northfield near Walgreen’s connecting to an underpass of Hwy 3. Some additional trail will be built west of Cannon Falls and another bridge will be built in Faribault which will include underpass access for both Hwys. 21 and Hwy 3 north of town.
I’d like more details on these and other aspects of the trail but for some reason, the Mill Towns Trail website has been dead for almost two years. No minutes since Jan. 2007. Lots of outdated info. The Mill Towns Trail Board page on the Rice County website is equally unhelpful.
Who are the “trail faithful” who attended the Sept. meeting?
Why is there never any effort to communicate with the public?
