CROCT member Dave Berglund and I attended the second Meadows Park community planning on Wednesday night at the Northfield Middle School. (For background, see my blog post on the first meeting back in November titled Could mountain biking be part of Northfield’s new Meadows Park?
The good news: All three of the proposed concept plans presented by the consultants would accommodate a mountain bike trail around the perimeter of the park:
When the consultants asked for programming suggestions, I mentioned that a mountain bike XC trail there would provide:
- a venue for members of the local high school/middle school mountain bike team to practice
- another trail for us to host our Community Services Monday nights summer group rides for youth
The schedule calls for City Council approval of the park’s master plan by summer.
