A public hearing was advertised ten days in advance of, and held at this meeting, at which time the HPC voted unanimously to recommend that the Immigrant House Bed and Breakfast be designated a Duluth heritage preservation landmark. An amended nomination form and preservation plan were approved on February 6, 2007, by the HPC. The Minnesota historical society concurred with this recommendation in its official comment on the recommended local designation of the property, the historic and architectural merit of the property and the HPC nomination.
