Higher Education Small Area Plan

Plandocument CoverThe areas surrounding the University of Minnesota-Duluth and the College of St. Scholastica are being studied using the small area plan format. The Comprehensive Land Use Plan, adopted in 2006, recognized that areas near Duluth's colleges are impacted, both positively and negatively, from student presence in the community. Between 2001 and 2010, the student population increased by 30%, making higher education a major economic driver in Duluth. Because of this increase, a small area plan is warranted in order to study those areas where the presence of these educational institutions affects land use, transportation, and the local economy. The purpose of the Higher Education Small Area Plan is to balance the needs of this significant industry in Duluth with the needs of surrounding neighborhoods.
