The city of Duluth is looking for public input regarding newly proposed downtown historic district standards.

The proposed standards from the city's Planning & Economic Development Department would act as a guideline to assist property owners and contractors in determining how to maintain, repair, and, when necessary, replace features that are a part of historic structures and located within the downtown historic district, a city of Duluth news release said Wednesday.

The virtual public information meeting will take place 6 p.m. Thursday.

The meeting will include a short presentation followed by a comment period.

To join the meeting, visit and select “heritage preservation commission.”

A recording of the meeting will be saved and posted to the city’s website for those who are not able to attend the meeting, but are interested in the outcome.

The downtown historic district standards would only apply to properties within the Duluth Commercial Historic District boundaries.

City staff will share the final recommendations with the Heritage Preservation Commission and the Planning Commission in November. If approved, the standards would go before the City Council in December, and, if adopted, the standards would go into effect in early 2022.

Staff can be contacted by emailing, or calling 218-730-5580.
