Robbie and I ordered a couple of bubble teas this afternoon, served up by the proprietors of Tea Creations, Pa Nou Yang and Daniel Xiong. Yum! They opened for business earlier in the day. Pa Nou said she planned to have items on the food menu available tomorrow.
While walking around the intersection of 28th and Nicollet, I noticed how the in-ground trees, the planters, and the tables, chairs, and umbrellas for sidewalk dining all made for an attractive urban landscape.
And I noticed that the less-than-five-feet of clearance between the tables and the buildings does not seem to be an issue.
Why do I mention it? Because the issue is back before the Northfield City Council this week as staff have brought back two options for trees on 4th St. reconstruction, one of which seems to include some faulty assumptions.
