Streets Improvement Plan

Introduction

Repairing city streets remains a top priority for City Administration and the City Council. As we all know, the harsh winter has taken a toll on streets. Furthermore, the City is no longer receiving the casino revenue ($6M/year) which had been used directly for street repair. The task before us now is deciding how to proceed with much needed street improvement without this dedicated funding source.

The City of Duluth invited the public to attend public meetings on a Street Improvement Plan. Three meetings had been scheduled at the following times and locations:

  • Wednesday, November 20th, 6 pm, at East High School, Room 1060

  • Tuesday, November 26th, 6 pm, at Denfeld High School, Media Room

  • Monday, December 2nd, Noon, Duluth City Hall, Room 303

At these meetings, City officials provided a brief overview, outlined the goals and challenges, and discussed possible solutions including funding sources. Staff was on hand to help lead the discussion, answer questions, and record feedback from the public. All were welcomed and encouraged to attend.

A streets working group has been meeting regularly for several months to address and summarize the issue of street improvements and provide possible solutions. The working group consists of City staff (administration, engineering, streets maintenance, and finance) as well as three city councilors, as appointed by the Council President.
