Most recently, the State of Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development reported that since January 2017, the northeast region had gained 6,200 jobs which employers are now challenged to fill at a time when job seekers hold the cards.

You are invited to attend a public informational meeting to discuss remaining DWP Trail restoration work in 2018. The work aims to restore approximately five miles of natural surface trail between Becks Road and Lower Spirit Mountain.
The public meeting will take place on:
Thursday April 5, 2017
Morgan Park Community Center
1242 88th Avenue West
Restoration efforts will improve the existing DWP trail and expand the intended uses for multiple user groups. Planned work will clear a ten foot trail width and address erosion issues at key locations along the corridor. Proposed work includes repairs to washouts and stormwater structures, clearing brush, minor grading, and removal of rock debris from the trail. Residents and visitors can expect construction to begin in spring of 2018.
As part of the trail system improvements, work began in the fall of 2017 on the former Stewart Creek Railroad Bridge and Clyde Connector Trail. Upon completion this fall, the refurbished bridge, Clyde and DWP trails will provide improved access to the western segment of the City of Duluth trail network.

Wednesday April 18
Grand Avenue Chalet
8551 Grand Avenue
After nearly two years of planning led by the City of Duluth in partnership with Spirit Mountain Recreation Authority, Community Partners and Stakeholders, Phase I construction of the Grand Avenue Nordic Center is slated to begin this summer. The scope of this project includes 2.5km of new cross-country ski trails and above ground snowmaking infrastructure.
Buffer zoning is often planned in neighborhoods to alleviate problems between potentially incompatible properties. At this meeting, staff will provide an overview of the current buffer zone, followed by recommendations to replace the existing buffer with P1 zoning, which will provide permanent protection from future development.
We look forward to further discussing neighborhood concerns, while sharing the exciting development at Spirit Mountain Recreation Area.
The public meeting will take place on:
Thursday April 19
