Making a Visible Difference in Communities: Minnesota
The St. Louis River Corridor is the focus and priority for environmental, health and economic development in Duluth. The St. Louis River Corridor Strategic Action Framework directs funding priorities in the corridor in a way that improves water quality and supports the revitalization and economic development goals of corridor communities. These communities include:
- Lincoln Park
- West Duluth
- Morgan Park
- New Duluth
The city’s area-wide planning encompasses smart growth, green and sustainable infrastructure needs, and addressing communities with environmental justice concerns. Previous Brownfield assessment grants enabled the city to complete a brownfields inventory within these communities.
