Downtown : October Update

Downtown Duluth is our community’s heart, and we need a downtown that is vibrant and thriving. But first, we must address the reality of current challenges. Concerns about attractiveness, safety, and cleanliness. To get there, we need a multifaceted approach to address mental health and addiction struggles. A long term strategy of a statewide investment in mental health is crucial, combined locally with a supportive housing option similar to the San Marco – a proven housing option for those in our community struggling with addiction. Jail and the ER are neither effective or affordable.
