Reader's view: Public can’t use Lakewalk easement until trail is built
I commend the News Tribune for its positive editorial on the progress we have made toward closing the gap in the Lakewalk in the area between 19th and 26th avenues east (Our View: “No reason to forfeit lake access,” Dec. 21). As the News Tribune reported, a study by the firm LHB...

Reader's view: Lakewalk link was 50 years in the making
I sat on my front porch on a recent morning and watched a 5-foot asphalt path being built to connect my part of eastern Duluth to the Lakewalk above the railroad tracks. Fifty years ago, my kids and the rest of the neighborhood kids made their own path to the lake for a summer swim....

Our view: Embrace Lakewalk compromise plan
Finally, a plan to finish off a missing link of Lakewalk along eastern Duluth’s Lake Superior shoreline. Finally, a reasonable, affordable and acceptable-to-most-while-not-ideal-for-anyone compromise that can end a long-festering community controversy. Even if not so “finally”...

Reader's view: Gravel Lakewalk near condos makes sense
Duluth City Councilor Joel Sipress’ suggestion for a less-costly pedestrian public access as part of a Lakewalk extension near 20th Avenue East makes perfect sense and is an idea I love (“Estimated cost revealed for proposed Lakewalk section,” March 26). I really like the gravel...
