Background

The City has a 2008 Park, Open Space, and Trail system plan in which numerous park improvements were identified for the community, however, only a couple projects have been completed over the last 13 years. The City is beginning to hear more frequently from the public about deteriorating park amenities and unmet needs in the community.

FiftyNorth, the city’s senior center located in the Northfield Community Resource Center (NCRC) is looking at expansion options with a study underway and nearing completion. In 2016, the City went through a process to evaluate the existing ice arena and ultimately went to a referendum to replace the ice arena with a multipurpose facility the “Cannon River Civic Center” and provide additional funding for parks, but that vote didn’t pass.

The City recently adopted the Riverfront Enhancement Action Plan, with a goal of activating and improving the riverfront. There are numerous parks along the river that will need to be master planned and improved.

Timeline

The City will be creating the Park and Recreation Capital Investment Plan through the summer of 2022. In the fall of 2022, the draft plan will be shared with the public for input, with the final plan completed by December of 2022.
