After issuing a request for proposals, we have selected Design Workshop as our lead consultant team to help us through this expected 12-month process. We have established a Project Advisory Committee, made up of staff and citizen representatives, to guide the process along with our consultant team.
Community engagement is an important aspect of developing this plan to understand the needs, values and anticipated future demands of Duluth’s residents and park system users. The first step of the Master Plan project is hosting a series of focus group meetings with select stakeholders in order to understand the broad range of interests and perspectives regarding Duluth’s parks and recreation. Focus group participants will be comprised of recreation partners, subject matter experts, and citizens representing a spectrum of experience and areas of interest.
