The Open House will be this Thursday, December 20th, from 4 to 6 pm at the Northfield City Hall.

According to the notice: “residents of the city, business owners, community organizations, and any other interested parties are encouraged to attend this public open house. The purpose of this open house will be to inform the community stakeholders of the 5th and Water Street Parking Lot Improvement Project process and to gather public input on a variety of opportunities for the: geometric design of 5th Street and Water Street Parking Lot, design of the public promenade adjacent to the Water Street Parking Lot, and design of streetscape enhancements for 5th Street. This information will be used to identify public priorities and preferred options for the 5th and Water Street Improvement Project while ensuring compatibility with adjacent Downtown uses.

This open house is your chance to express your views on the future and proposed ideas on how to improve the 5th and Water Street area. No presentation is scheduled; time will be used for our guests to review, comment, and obtain information on the current project status.
