Property Tax Issue Hits the Front Page

ThreatenedByTaxes.jpgSaturday’s Northfield News had a front page story about an issue that the NDDC has been working on for several years now. It’s the ever-rising commercial property taxes in Downtown Northfield.

After many years of double-digit property tax increases, the economic viability of our traditional commercial district is being threatened. Something must be done if our historic buildings and local businesses are to survive.

The NDDC’s E R Team journeys to St. Paul again tomorrow, to meet with key leaders on this issue. Our stated intention is to get a plan in place by late summer or early autumn for implementation at the next legislative session.
