City asks for public comments for the 319 to 333 East Superior Street Project EAW
[Duluth, MN] - The City of Duluth is asking the public to submit written comments during a 30-day public review period on an Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) prepared for the 319 to 333 East Superior Street project. The public comment period will be open from Tuesday, February 23 to Thursday, March 25, at 4:30 p.m.
The project involves the demolition of three buildings in downtown Duluth at the southwest corner of Superior Street East and North 4th Avenue East that will be replaced by a 15-story mixed-use complex. The complex will house retail space on the first and second floors and 200 apartments, including three townhome units. The new facility will provide parking for the three townhome units and a loading zone. Additional parking spaces have been secured in a parking ramp on an adjoining property.
The EAW provides information on the environmental impacts of this project. The EAW is available online at https://duluthmn.gov/planning-development/environmental/environmental-assessment-worksheets/.
Written comments must be submitted no later than 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 25, 2021, to the attention of Adam Fulton, Deputy Director of Planning and Economic Development, 411 West First Street, Room 160, Duluth, MN 55802. Electronic comments may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with “319 - 333 East Superior Street” in the subject line. If submitting comments electronically, please include your full name and postal mailing address.
The Planning Commission will hold a Public Hearing to receive comments on the EAW on Tuesday, March 9, 2021, 5:00 p.m. via WebEx; a link can be found at https://duluthmn.gov/live-meeting/.
The Planning Commission will review all written comments and determine if the EAW is sufficient or if an Environmental Impact Statement is needed at the end of the comment period.
