Locally Grown: show for week of 10.15.06

The focus of this week’s episode was transportation, specifically, County Highway 1 and the Corridor Preservation Study for Rice County. See Tracy’s But Where Does the Bridge Go? post last week for background, links, and a map. “The idea behind the study is to identify potential routes for an east-west arterial road south of Hwy. 19, since the 2025 Rice County Transportation Plan indicates that such a road may be needed.”

Other topics briefly touched: Center for Sustainable Living’s Community Composting project, the Farmer’s Market, Mill Towns Trail, Third Thursday, and the proposed Northfield Skateboard Park.
