CORE X Partners Cold Storage EAW

CORE X Partners (CORE X), formerly known as RLS, is proposing to construct up to a 370,000 square foot cold storage facility in two phases, in Bridgewater Township, Rice County, Minnesota.  The Project would also include a rail siding, septic, and well.  Bridgewater Township would reconstruct 1.5 miles of 140th Street from Acorn Avenue/County Road 76 to Bachrach Avenue/County Road 83, as a 10-ton road, in part to serve the facility.  A copy of the document is available via the link below.

About the Bridgewater Community

Bridgewater Township is a small rural community located in the Northeast corner of Rice County, Minnesota, roughly 30 miles south of Minneapolis-St. Paul. 
The area was first settled in 1844, and Bridgewater was officially organized as a township by the Rice County Board of Commissioners in 1858. While living close to the cities of Northfield, Dundas, and Faribault — and major metropolitan shopping and entertainment offered by the Twin Cities — our residents enjoy the benefits of a rural lifestyle in a largely agricultural community. 
Bridgewater Township is governed by the traditional township form of government. Patterned after the English town meeting style of government, township government embodies the ideal of grassroots democratic participation envisioned by the nation’s founders. In Minnesota, townships are the traditional rural unit of government. Minnesota has more townships than any state in the nation with 1,796 townships, and that form of government presently serves approximately one-fourth of the population of Minnesota. The board of supervisors is the governing body of the township, and is elected by direct ballot of eligible voters. There are currently five township supervisors who serve three-year terms. The township staff includes a Zoning Administrator, Treasurer, Clerk, and Road Superintendent. 
The primary responsibilities of Bridgewater Township include: care of township roads, planning and zoning for the township, proper conduct of elections, and participate with other units of government (cities, counties, townships) to cooperate with planning issues. A unique feature of Bridgewater Township includes the orderly annexation agreements currently in place with the City of Northfield and the City of Dundas. These agreements were forged to help direct future growth in sensible ways.
