The Bayfront District Small Area Plan will study the area just west of Bayfront Park to determine whether any changes are required to future land use. This area has been the focus of numerous previous plans, and this Small Area Plan will take that information and recommendations of those plans into consideration.
The study area includes the DEDA and Lafarge cement properties west of Bayfront Park (map). The area is also bordered by I35, the Cutler Magney property to the west, and the Duluth-Superior harbor. This area was identified because ownership and market characteristics are in transition, and a detailed study could help determine the future land use of the area.
