Richfield

City’s first dog park to open on south side

Richfield city lead¬≠ers will open the city’s first off-leash dog park Thurs¬≠day at Roo¬≠se¬≠velt Park. A rib¬≠bon-cut¬≠ting cer¬≠e¬≠mo¬≠ny will be¬≠gin at 4:30 p.m., and the first 25 dogs will be giv¬≠en “pooch-friend¬≠ly goodie bags.”

The full­y en­closed dog park will be open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and of­fer groom­ing sta­tions, fire hy­drants, waste sta­tions, pic­nic ta­bles and areas for both big and small breeds. A city dog li­cense will be re­quired to use the park.

Amy Mar¬≠kle, Richfield’s rec¬≠re¬≠a¬≠tion ser¬≠vices di¬≠rec¬≠tor, said in a news re¬≠lease that dur¬≠ing the pan¬≠dem¬≠ic, “It has be¬≠come evi¬≠dent that dog walk¬≠ing is a big way our resi¬≠dents use our parks.” Roo¬≠se¬≠velt Park is at 7644 4th Av., with park¬≠ing off E. 77th Street.

Fair Haven will be new name for park

Bailey Lake Park has been re­named Fair Haven Park af­ter its ad­ja­cent neigh­bor­hood to make it easi­er to find, fol­low­ing a de­ci­sion by the Woodbury City Council.

The growth of neighborhoods in the area made the park feel dis¬≠tant from the lake it was named for, said Parks and Rec¬≠re¬≠a¬≠tion Director Mi¬≠chelle O¬≠ka¬≠da. Nam¬≠ing parks af¬≠ter a near¬≠by de¬≠vel¬≠op¬≠ment is com¬≠mon prac¬≠tice in Woodbury. “Wayfinding is a big com¬≠po¬≠nent of it,” she said.

City lead­ers had con­sid­ered the name Red Pine Park af­ter the state tree, but dropped the i­de­a when it was de­ter­mined the park was popu­lat­ed pri­mar­i­ly by Scotch pines. The 4.5-acre park is near Dale Road and Woodbury Drive.

INVER GROVE HEIGHTS

Af­ford­a­ble com­plex opens for fami­lies

Inver Grove Heights lead­ers and hous­ing ad­vo­cates cele­brat­ed the grand open­ing Wednes­day of Ca­hill Place, the first per­ma­nent sup­port­ive hous­ing de­vel­op­ment for fami­lies in Dakota County.

The 40-unit com­plex, which will of­fer on-site sup­port ser­vices with the help of Dakota County, was op­ened to ten­ants start­ing Oct. 1. The $13 mil­lion pro­ject was fi­nanced through the state, coun­ty and Metropolitan Council, and de­vel­op­er Center City Housing Corp. will man­age the com­plex.

The pro­ject was ap­proved two years ago by the City Council and built on land owned by ad­ja­cent River Heights Vineyard Church, which will sup­ply vol­un­teers for the site.

Board OKs $372K air clean­ing sys­tem

More than a doz­en Anoka County build­ings will be equipped with a new in­door air clean­ing sys­tem used by Mayo Clinic and the local school dis­trict to neu­tral­ize the coronavirus.

Fol¬≠low¬≠ing guide¬≠lines set by the Centers for Dis¬≠ease Control and Prevention, the County Board ap¬≠proved add¬≠ing the Glo¬≠bal Plasma Solutions sys¬≠tem to its ex¬≠ist¬≠ing heat¬≠ing and air con¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠ing sys¬≠tem in 14 heav¬≠i¬≠ly used coun¬≠ty build¬≠ings, in¬≠clud¬≠ing the Government Center, sher¬≠iff’s de¬≠part¬≠ment, jail, ju¬≠ve¬≠nile cen¬≠ter and med¬≠i¬≠cal ex¬≠am¬≠in¬≠er’s of¬≠fice. Li¬≠cense centers won’t be out¬≠fit¬≠ted with the sys¬≠tem be¬≠cause those build¬≠ings are leased, not coun¬≠ty-owned.

The $372,340 sys­tem will be in­stalled by Dec. 1, the dead­line to use fed­er­al CARES Act fund­ing. Board Chairman Scott Schulte said the sys­tem will deal not only with the coronavirus but also com­bat the flu and al­ler­gens.
