News and Announcements

Warming houses and rinks are closed

Although the city appreciates and values resident’s eagerness, the city asks that people still stay off the ice until the city opens the rinks and warming houses. Great progress was made this week flooding. Next week, we will be flooding at night and during the day. With the warmer temps in the forecast, it’s important not to skate on the ice because it could cause damage that will further delay opening of the rinks and warming houses. Thanks for the cooperation!

 

State Highway 371 Bike and Pedestrian Crossing Study Overview

Crossing Study Overview

The purpose of the study is to identify bike/pedestrian crossing improvements along Highway 371 at the signals as well as potential opportunities to construct a grade-separated crossing within the study area. Within the study area, there are existing traffic signals at Excelsior Road and Woida Road, with marked pedestrian crosswalks and pedestrian walk signals. These intersections are far apart, so pedestrians have to walk long distances to cross Highway 371. The study will also look for east-west trail connection opportunities. The City Comprehensive Plan identifies future trails at Clearwater Road and Woida Road, which will provide multimodal connections to and across Highway 371.

Policy Study Overview

The purpose of the study is to create a bike/pedestrian policy for use when reviewing roadway improvement projects in the City. Within the study area, there are 85 miles of roadway. The Policy Study will examine existing infrastructure, nation-wide best practices, and ways that Baxter can implement safe and cost-effective bicycle and pedestrian improvements.

2018 Hunting Map

The City of Baxter hunting map has seen some changes over the past few years.  Please review the map if you are planning on doing any hunting within the city limits. The map identifies where hunting is permitted and what type of weapon can be used in each designated area. As a reminder, hunters still need written permission from the property owner to hunt. It is also the responsibility of the hunter to know if hunting is permitted on the land which they are hunting.
