The LGR trio reviewed the issues and themes emerging from our recent shows featuring three members of the Northfield City Council and tried to dissect the process deployed for the hotel market study that recently came to light.
Their guest this week was Northfield Third Ward City Councilor Erica Zweifel. They discussed her reflections of her first year on the Council, especially in areas related to the Council 2009 goal to “implement effective methods of communication with citizen advisory groups and community.”
The guest this week was Northfield Second Ward City Councilor Betsey Buckheit. We discussed her reflections of her first year on the Council, which she wrote about on her blog last month in a post titled What I’ve learned so far.
On their last podcast of 2009 the LGR (Locally Grown Radio) trio tried to decipher the Nfld News column by City of Northfield At-Large Councilor Rhonda Pownell titled Teamwork: Time to let go of fear, unforgiveness. So this week, she came on the show to explain it herself. From there, they broadened the discussion to include overall City Council performance for 2009 and anticipated new goals for 2010.
Ross was AWOL yesterday so Tracy put on her PC-ZBA hat and I pretended to be interested, asking her about the latest with the annexations in Greenvale and Bridgewater townships as well as the Land Development Code. We introduced the show with lots of fun fluff, natch.
