mayologoNfld News: Mayo announces $10 million facility in Northfield.

St. Olaf President David Anderson sent out this email earlier today

Dear Oles and Colleagues:

I am writing to inform you of a pending development that involves a parcel of land owned by the College on the far northern edge of campus.

Mayo Clinic is proposing the development of a radiation oncology treatment center in Northfield. The facility will be located near Northfield Hospital. The center’s patients will have access to services provided by the hospital.

Mayo is considering an approximately 3  1/2  acre tract along the south side of North Avenue, with the College leasing that land for construction of the new center. Once completed, the 13,000 square foot facility will allow Northfield area patients to receive oncology services close to home, where before many had to travel more than an hour away for their daily radiation treatments.

While digging through my photo archives, I stumbled upon photos from two public meetings in late fall of 2003: the Hospital Reuse Open House in November and a presentation by Hospital Reuse committee members Alex Beeby and Meg Hargreaves to the City Council in December, with photos of citizens (primarily Mail carrier Tom Kotula with special delivery package Way Park advocates) speaking at open mic. (Those links go to my blog posts at Northfield.org.) I’ve combined the photos from both meetings into one album.

There are some familiar faces in this album.  My favorite: downtown mail carrier Tom Kotula, showing his ability to handle more than the mail.

See the album of 38 photos, the large slideshow, or this small slideshow:
