Over the past decade Duluth has seen more than $2 billion worth of new projects and investments.

After scoring strong numbers from the National Citizen Survey Duluth won the Voice of the People Award for Transformation in Built Environment.

The award is given to cities whose residents report high levels of satisfaction with improvements made in their communities.

I think we’re just in the very beginning stages of what I call a virtuous cycle,” Duluth Mayor Don Ness said. “So positive investments in our community then lead to more economic activity, which lead to even more economic investment.”

Duluth city officials believe the town snagged the honor because of small and large investments like the Amsoil Arena, Duluth International Airport, Maurices headquarters as well as progress in the housing stock, parks and trails.

“I think while it’s wonderful to have this sort of recognition and win this type of national award what’s really important is that Duluthians are making these investments,” said Ness. “Feeling better about our city and reflecting a stronger local economy.”

The award will be given out at the 101st annual International City/County Management Association conference in Seattle, Washington this September.
