After taking a possible annexation by Proctor to court earlier this year, a portion of Midway Township will become a part of Duluth.
An 8-1 Duluth City Council vote on Monday night approved the orderly annexation of 'Parcel I' - a southern part of the township that was already substantially owned by the city.
Township leadership and the Council entered into an agreement in January 2013 regarding the voluntary annexation.
In March, a judge barred Proctor from annexing the land bordering Carlton County after Midway Township Vice Chair Jim Aird said 600 people signed a petition in opposition.
The judge ruled Proctor failed to prove it would benefit the township.
Duluth's annexation of the mostly-wooded land will go into effect in 30 days.
