Duluth's Superior Street is due for a makeover, and the old downtown thoroughfare will see a facelift in a few years.
But what will 6th Avenue West to 4th Avenue East look like after it is finished?
City planning officials have narrowed it down to two different designs, and both were unveiled at an open house meeting Tuesday.
Now they want to know what you do and do not like about each proposal.
"Look at the street surfaces, the sidewalk surfaces, where we've got the parking, do we have enough gathering spaces? People want a lot of gathering spaces. They wanted wider sidewalks," explained Keith Hamre, director of planning and construction services for Duluth. "We've adjusted to having a combination of parallel parking and angle parking. One design concept has just parallel parking."
Hamre says both plans will provide less parking than is currently available, but pointed out there will be more parking garages built.
There are still two more public meetings coming up to provide your input before a final decision is made.
Exact dates have not been set for those future meetings, but one is tentatively scheduled for May and another for August.
You can provide your input at any time by going to the city's website here.
Construction is expected to begin in 2016.
