Public Affairs

Duluth's Comprehensive Land Use Plan was adopted in 2006 by the City of Duluth to put forth future considerations for land development. Last year, city planners sought to update the 10-year old plan and held a series of public meetings to gain input from citizens about how to modify the Plan.

Last December, local television reporter and news anchor Michelle Lee retired after almost 40 years as a broadcaster.  Within a few weeks, she boarded a bus with a crowd of other Northlanders and headed for Washington DC.

Never one to miss a chance to stretch KUMD’s budget with volunteers, I asked Michelle if she’d mind capturing some audio and doing some interviews for us on the trip, and she graciously consented, then joined me in the studio to talk about the trip.

As the grandchild of an engineer on the Great Northern Railroad, I always thought the engineer ran the train.
