Duluth's "Creative Corridor" Well on Track

DULUTH, MN (KDAL) -- Mayor Don Ness championed east downtown's transformation into a "creative corridor," promising to continue that transformation in an effort to lure entrepreneurs and retain a growing young population at a press conference held today at the Zeitgeist Arts complex. The news conference came on the heels of a Knight Community Building Fellows/University of Miami School of Architecture report outlining progress the city has made in that area from recommendations proposed during a 2005 public design workshop and visioning process called the Duluth East Downtown, Hillside and Waterfront Charrette.

The team of national experts in transportation, housing and urban planning said during a 2011 visit that Duluth had made as much progress in six years as it would take many cities two decades to make. Ness cited recent openings of new art galleries and the potential re-opening of the NorShor Theatre as evidence the city was well on it's way to realize the creative corridor vision.
