Faribault Main Street Coordinator and Marketing Director Nort Johnson stops by KDHL for AM Minnesota at 9:30AM.

Johnson made a presentation to a joint committee of the Faribault City Council last evening concerning location signs around the community. Nort says these "way finding signs" will direct visitors to Shattuck and other sites people like to visit in Faribault. They can also direct people to restaurants, etc.

We will also get an update on the Downtown Business Challenge, an effort to fill empty space in downtown Faribault. A number of individuals submitted their ideas for businesses downtown.

I'm not sure if Nort can share the ideas at this point, but we will try to find out what kind of businesses are being touted without getting too specific. I fully understand people not having a desire to divulge their idea so it isn't stolen.

If you can't tune in this morning go to the KDHL YouTube channel and watch at a time that works for you.
