Beaver Bay Planning
ARDC's Regional Planning Division is assisting the City of Beaver Bay with their planning needs.

Project Summary
ARDC assisted Beaver Bay in developing the City's first comprehensive plan. The planning process commenced in the summer of 2006 and was successfully completed on December 12, 2006 when the City Council voted unanimously to adopt the plan.

The plan, which was funded in part with a grant from Minnesota's Lake Superior Coastal Program, addresses transportation, recreation, housing, water and wastewater, land use and zoning, and community and economic development. The City is currently working with ARDC to implement the plan recommendations and to pursue funding sources for work in creating a downtown business design district and city wide parks and recreation plan. The plan can viewed online by clicking on the link below.
