On March 17, 2011, the Mayor of Northfield received a letter from the United States Postal Service announcing its intention to consolidate the Bridge Square Post Office into the Carrier Annex on Cannon Road. The Mayor asked the NDDC to convene a task force with the intent of opposing this plan.

The Save Our Post Office Task Force (SOPO) includes representatives from the NDDC, Northfield City Council, City of Northfield Staff, Chamber of Commerce, EDA, Northfield Arts Guild, Carleton College, St. Olaf College, and other local business representatives. For more information, contact Ross Currier,
