1306 Repealed

At last night’s meeting, the Council voted 6 to 1 to repeal optional Chapter 1306 from the Northfield building code. The NDDC had worked long and hard on this issue, believing, along with the American Institute of Architects, the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota and a good number of other Minnesota cities, that 1306 was economically and physically destructive to historic buildings. All of the Council members, regardless of their votes, showed great understanding of and appreciation for both sides of this issue and put serious thought into their decision. We thank them for their careful deliberations.
