The City of Northfield and the Mayor's Streetscape Task Force will host a forum for public input on Monday, November 21st, 5 to 7 p.m., at the Northfield Armory, 519 Division Street.

One of the two dozen or so projects that the Streetscape Task Force has recommended to the City Council is the “Gateways” Project master planning.  The project areas encompass the main entry corridors that serve as the “gateways” into town and leading to its core.

The objective is to create a “sense of arrival” for people coming to our town and as they move through and/or into our community.  The project will also identify priority needs and opportunities for multi-modal circulation and safety, as well as strengthening the connections between different neighborhoods or sides of our community.

Transition Northfield has been wondering how we can help make our community more resilient: able to adapt and recover rapidly under difficult conditions. So, we’ve decided to host a series of public meetings to prepare a Community Resilience Transition Plan – an outline of local, workable, concrete action steps that we can take as a community and as individuals in response to our pressing issues related to energy, the environment, and economics.

As we create this plan together, we’ll also acknowledge the great work that has been done, and continues to be done, by various groups and individuals in the Northfield area. Our goal is to honor all of this work that contributes to our community resilience, and to provide a space for people to share and coordinate their efforts, resources, difficulties, and accomplishments as we take action.

Sometimes, though, it’s hard to come up with ideas for creative, personal gifts. During the Gift Gala we’ll have Idea Elves on hand to help you put together some outstanding gifts.
