Looking ahead – Our view: City wise plan for East 11th Street Extension

Residents who enjoy well-planned investment in municipal infrastructure have reason to be impressed with the Glencoe City Council’s interest in the extension of East 11th Street toward Diamond Avenue.
Last week, the city council approved an application to the Minnesota Department of Transportation for a $1 million grant that would fund much of the extension of East 11th Street toward Diamond Avenue across agricultural land currently in Helen Township. The city eyes the street extension as a step toward expansion of Glencoe’s commercial-industrial tax base.
