The City of Northfield is completing a Downtown Flood Improvement Study. The City is guided by its strategic plan to provide a community that is resilient and sustainable as we plan and prepare for climate change impacts. The City of Northfield is working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) through the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program for Advanced Assistance.
The City has identified flood prone properties adjacent to the Cannon River that have been impacted most recently from the flooding in 2010 and 2016. The goal of the study is to identify projects and mitigation measure to alleviate damage to property from future flooding events.
