"One street would extend Riverview Drive to the cul-de-sac at the west end of Honeylocust Drive. Another potential roadway would attach Industrial Drive to Highway 19."

The proposal is still in very early stages, and Councilor Rhonda Pownell said it will likely be a conversation starter on how Northfield can be more attractive to new business, Northfield News reported.
