Everything from "personal awareness" to city-level action: that's what the Duluth Citizen's Climate Action Plan lays out for folks.

The plan aims to help our community reduce greenhouse gas emissions and build a climate-resilient community without forgetting about considerations of equity and social justice.

The new commission being proposed for Duluth has a long name that could, in fact, be even longer: Non-Binary, Queer, Trans, Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Intersex, Asexual Commission for the City of

St. Louis County Public Works and the City of Duluth will be holding a virtual public meeting to provide information about - and get feedback on - plans to construct a roundabout at the intersection of Glenwood Street and Snively Road.  KUMD talks with Vic Lund, a St. Louis County Traffic Engineer, about the considerations that were used by the city and county when determining a roundabout would be the best option at that intersection.

The journey of  a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Likewise the journey of a thousand steps to sustainability and quality-of-life goals for Minnesota cities and towns has been curated down to a mere 175. 

GreenStep Cities is a free, voluntary program that helps cities work at their own pace to make and achieve sustainability goals.  You can see how Duluth is doing here.

The Imagine Canal Park project wrapped up last month and now it's time to crunch the data and evaluate what worked and what didn't.

Folks haven't heard the last of it, though: there are plans to go ahead with Cold Front February again this year and once the artists get done with them, you may be paying more attention to those utility boxes than you ever thought you might.

The folks who work at NRRI are like the ultimate post-Thanksgiving chefs.

They're always looking for innovative ways to use leftovers.

Take potholes, for instance.  If you want a patch to last, why not make it of iron?  Or the next best thing - taconite tailings.

This weekend is the Duluth Superior Pride Festival, four days of celebrating the rich LGBT community in the Northland.  Thursday is the Duluth Mayor's reception at The Depot and Friday evening Zeitgeist hosts the DS Pride Exhibition with a reception at 7 p.m.
