Lincoln Park and Miller Creek
Urban Land Institute Report

Duluth faces many resilience challenges due to its climate, population, and topography. Ecolibrium3 served as a regional leader in disaster recovery after the June 2012 floods and has continued to push our community toward greater resilience. This leadership included sponsoring and coordinating a national resilience Advisory Services Panel in Duluth in September of 2015. The panel specifically looked at the challenges due to the 47+ “vertical waterfronts” in Duluth by focusing on Miller Creek and its impact on the Lincoln Park neighborhood. To learn more about how this report was used in Minnesota’s application to the National Disaster Resilience Competition, check out Big Water MN: Ripples of Resilience.
