Location: Clyde Iron Works

What are the challenges and opportunities for neigbhorhoods and parks that border a city’s downtown? How does a city address low income housing, density, zoning, walkability? What ways can a city take advantage of significant commercial developments bordering a downtown?

This presentation will look at conditions impacting Duluth’s Central Hillside neighborhood, including the $800 million Essentia Health campus plan. Jess Zimbabwe will suggest comparisons between Duluth and other towns of similar size that have dealt with similar issues with downtown edge conditions. A discussion of both “micro-level “ neighborhood issues and impacts, as well as “macro-level” regional issues and impacts will be examined.

Presented by Jess Zimbabwe, licensed architect, certified city planner, and director of urban development at the National League of Cities. Joining Jess will be former Duluth mayor Don Ness.
