City by City: Duluth, Two Harbors, Mt. Iron
Duluth, MN- Several local groups are coming together to host Invasive Knotweed Workshops. Those groups include the City of Duluth, Duluth Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (DCISMA), Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA), Carlton Soil and Water Conservation District, and the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. Knotweed, also called bamboo, is an invasive plant that grows rapidly and causes damage to property, lakes and local streams. Organizers say it’s critical for community members to be able to identify the plant and learn more about it to help keep it from spreading. The free workshops will be Thursday, August 4 and 11.
Two Harbors, MN- A commercial development is in its environmental review phase. The Harbors Resort is a 23-acre resort on E Stanley Rd. Phase 1 and 2 have been approved by Lake County and included gravel work, stormwater plans and amenities plus the first 24 cabins. Phase 3 is what is under review and consists of an additional 21 cabins. The public has until September 1 to comment on the environmental assessment. A public meeting will be held on September 19.
