Afton projects on hold because of tribes' concerns


Four major projects in downtown Afton are on hold after representatives of tribal governments expressed concerns about possible ancient American Indian burial sites.

Afton officials plan to meet with tribal officials Nov. 7 regarding the Rattlesnake Effigy mound, which is near a planned stormwater retention pond.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency last year issued a final permit for construction but the project had to be reviewed under the National Historic Preservation Act because federal funding is involved.
