As a property owner and part-time resident of Duluth, I was thrilled to read that the City Council unanimously supported moving forward on plans to reimagine and rebuild the Interstate 35 corridor through downtown Duluth (Our View: “Bold vision for Duluth gains welcome support,” Aug. 19).

The Duluth Waterfront Collective has done a great job showing how such changes could reconnect downtown Duluth and the surrounding neighborhoods with Canal Park and the Lakewalk.

The City Council and News Tribune also deserve credit for recognizing the huge opportunities a redeveloped I-35 corridor will present for our local economy, environment, and community.

This is exciting!

Letters are limited to 300 words, must be the original work of the author and must be exclusive to the News Tribune. Letters are edited for style, space, accuracy and civility.

Letter writers are limited to one published submission every 30 days.

With rare exceptions, the News Tribune does not publish poetry; letters that are anonymous, libelous or attack other writers; consumer-complaint letters; thank-you letters; or letters generated by political or special-interest campaigns.

We will consider exclusive Local View columns of 600 words or fewer. Authors should possess unique insights, and their commentaries should demonstrate greater knowledge of their subject than letters.
