Editor's note: A Mike Darrow column from the summer of 2016 was mistakenly reprinted in the Aug. 31 edition of the News. This is the correct column. The News apologizes and regrets the error. On behalf of Mayor Fred and the entire City Council, we want to thank the Doar family, distinguished panelists, sponsors, countless volunteers, staff and community members for making the John Doar History Trail celebration a memorable event.
Later this month, the City of New Richmond will be kicking off its Comprehensive Plan project. A Comprehensive Plan is a policy document intended to provide a “roadmap” for preservation, growth, and sustainability. Elements of the comprehensive plan include demographic trends, land use, economic development, transportation and infrastructure, natural and cultural resources, parks and trails, utilities, housing, downtown development, and intergovernmental cooperation.
