The Northfield Economic Development Authority (EDA) recently announced a new 3-year pilot loan program to assist downtown property owners who wish to make improvements to their building exteriors. The Facade Improvement Program will provide $20,000 a year in matching grant money to fund this initiative.  Each reimbursable grant will match the investment of the property owner dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000.

The NDDC Design Committee is grateful to the EDA for creating this new program. It’s the first local public assistance available to building owners in the historic district for many years. We encourage anyone that has been considering exterior work on their buildings to take advantage of this new opportunity!

Interested property owners should read the criteria for the program and, if interested, submit an application before March 15, 2020. If you have questions about the program or your application, please contact: Nate Carlson, Economic Development Coordinator (Nate.carlson@ci.northfield.mn.us /507-645-3069)

More Muslim ban countries…

Carol Overland - Legalectric - Tue, 02/04/2020 - 10:59am

Remember that unConstitutional, immoral, unethical, and obscene campaign promise? He’s still working on that, this time with a “Proclamation.” It was announced informally 4 days ago, and I was searching for it, couldn’t find anything, and I’m on the Federal Register alert list…

Today, there it is on “Public Inspection,” which is the “pre-publication” Federal Register heads up.

It’s not an “Executive Order,” but a Proclamation. What’s the difference? A recent court order made much of the authority of the President in issuing Executive Orders, so maybe that’s why this one wasn’t an Executive Order?

Here it is:

AFCL 2-3-2020_CorrespondenceDownload

Isn’t it about time that a wind project had environmental review in Minnesota? How is it these “environmental” and “clean energy” orgs think that projects should not have environmental review? And why would they think that an APPLICATION (Minn. R. 7854.0500, Subp. 7) qualifies as “environental review” or “alternative environmental review procedure. What a load…and they’re not even parties in this docket!
