City leaders are turning to the community to help direct how these funds should be distributed. The City’s Community Development Office plans to develop a 5-year Consolidated Plan that will identify community needs and set priorities.
The public is encouraged to participate in the 2014 Community Needs Survey by visiting the Community Development webpage at http://www.duluthmn.gov/community-development and clicking on the “TAKE THE SURVEY” link.
The survey takes five minutes and will serve to benefit many Duluth neighborhoods. The survey will be open through May 7, 2014.
