City statement on Riverfront Action Plan

The City of Northfield is a proud partner of Defeat of Jesse James Days and values the community gathering each year. The 2020 Riverfront Action Plan is not a construction plan document. Alternatively, the Riverfront Enhancement Action Plan is intended to create enthusiasm and key actions to further enhance Northfield’s riverfront parks into an exciting regional experience. Engaging with property owners and key users before advancing major improvements is recognized as an important future step to facilitate successful implementation. There will be many opportunities to further explore how future plans can advance the goals of DJJD and the vision to expand more year-round activity. Initial concept plans will be used to guide future engagement with DJJD and others as we explore other ideas for short and long-term improvements along the Cannon River. While some implementation steps can be taken in the coming years, many will be longer term incremental steps in nature that will need much more work and refinement as we look to advance the vision of continued enhancement of the Riverfront. Please stay tuned for more information on upcoming presentations and information on the Riverfront Enhancement Action Plan!
