Duluth Delays Overlay District Decision

Duluth wants to clean-up Buford Highway and is looking to create overlay zoning districts to remove certain acceptable commercial uses from along Buford Highway and in its downtown.  Types of commercial development that could be disallowed completely are modular home sales, used auto dealerships, auto repair businesses and pawn shops. 

The Duluth City Council delayed a decision this week to incorporate additional changes and to allow review by its legal department.  The proposed zoning changes will come back to the council on its September 8 meeting.

An August 11 version of the proposed overlay district proposals can be found here.  The proposed overlay districts are a part of a larger Buford Highway Corridor Development Strategy that includes a development of a 2030 Comprehensive Plan, creation of a Tax Allocation District (TAD), a Pilot Bond Program, a Citywide branding campaign, and hiring of a full-time Economic Development Manager.
