A steady surge in the number of patients at Allina Medical Clinic – Cottage Grove has the nonprofit, Minneapolis-based health care provider expanding its West Point Douglas Road facility, a project that will nearly double the clinic’s number of exam rooms and add roughly 11,000 square-feet.
In an economy full of mostly doom and gloom, Cottage Grove can look at a slim ray of hope: The city this year has already surpassed 2007’s record-low number of new housing starts, proof of at least a faint pulse in the city’s housing market.
In today’s troubled economic climate, Cottage Grove can’t afford to plan, let alone build, a community center, city council candidate Tom Dippel said last week at the League of Women Voters-sponsored Cottage Grove City Council and Mayor Forum, the lone candidate to stand against the much talked-about building.
Meeting with developers one-on-one or stopping in at out-of-town businesses to sell Cottage Grove: it’s a practice Myron Bailey says is being proactive. His opponent Fred Luden says it’s potentially problematic.
Stop lights at the increasingly dangerous 70th Street and Hardwood Avenue intersection should be operational by the first week of November, a Washington County official said last week, an effort to stem the sharp increase in automobile accidents the busy crossing has seen since 2005.
