Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Nort Johnson will be on AM Minnesota today and we are going to talk about happenings in the community in 2017.

I also asked Nort if he would give us an update on the downtown parking study that was undertaken this year.

He tells me the study has actually been completed and the group conducting the study is working on their recommendations.

I'm looking forward to hearing what the recommendations are after seeing four previous downtown parking studies conducted in the 30 years I've been in Faribault.

At one point there was talk of a parking ramp downtown and I've been told that has been brought up again as part of this most recent study.

We will find out if that is true during our visit with Mr. Johnson at 9:30 a.m.

If you can't listen in at that time we will videotape the show and upload to our YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/user/KDHLRadio.
