Two weeks ago I attended one of the forums sponsored by the city of Red Wing in support of the 2040 Innovative Ideas Series. The topic was Building Smart: Becoming World Class at Housing and Redevelopment. The presenters were knowledgeable at how to do development right. If we are looking for some upscale, trendy hangouts with nice loft apartments, I think we were well-informed. They encouraged the city to think carefully about what was needed, and how the community would be best served.
