The Irving Fairmount Brownfields Revitalization Plan (previously named the Western Port Area Neighborhood Plan) is an area wide planning effort focusing on Fairmount and Irving in western Duluth, (View the Map). These neighborhoods have many amenities that include residential, commercial, parks, trails and access to St. Louis River. The area also has unique opportunities for better connection to Spirit Valley commercial nodes, increased walkability, and redevelopment of post-industrial sites, and infrastructure improvements.
