The NDDC and Chamber created Retail Support Strategies Task Force met with Northfield City Administrator Al Roder this morning. The purpose of the meeting was discuss the needs of businesses and obstacles to economic development identified by the group over the past few months.
We had a very open and honest discussion of these topics, a free and vigorous exchange of ideas, and a few good shared laughs too. By the end of the meeting, we had agreed on a process to move forward in addressing many of the issues.
Actually, it was all just a ruse to get Al to pose for the Taste of Northfield poster, coming to a retail window near you. That’s Al, second from the left in the back row. This year’s event, on Thursday, July 19th, from 5 to 9 pm in Bridge Square, will be bigger and better than ever.
