Mollie Hinderaker is serving with the City of Duluth’s Planning and Economic Development Department. Originally from Minneapolis, Mollie studied Architecture and Urban Studies at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. However, it didn’t take long for Mollie to become a converted Duluthian. Mollie has enjoyed the variety of trails and watercolor painting opportunities since moving to Duluth. With past experience in public service at the State and County level, Mollie has appreciated the opportunity to engage community members on local issues and carry out projects for the City’s newly adopted Comprehensive Plan. So far in her service, Mollie has worked on creating annual equity reports for Imagine Duluth 2035 in addition to outlining an initiative to redesign the City flag. In the rest of her service she looks forward to bringing her unique creativity and enthusiasm to planning projects that better serve all residents and visitors of Duluth.
