New Member Spotlight: Duluth
NLC welcomes new member city, Duluth, MN!
Membership Region: Mid-West
Duluth is a four season city on the western tip of the largest fresh water source, Lake Superior. Duluth takes community engagement seriously and undertook a year long comprehensive planning process garnering input from 5000+ people using traditional and unconventional social engagement methods like Facebook live and "walk and talks" with the Mayor. Even in winter, about 1800 attendees of all ages braved the cold and explored an ice skating track along Lake Superior, luge track, fat tire biking, snow yoga, curling rink, free live music and pop-up vendors in below 0 temperatures as Duluth kicked off its inaugural “Cold Front” celebration in February highlighting the best of winter recreation.
