A Review of 2014: from Great Places to Highway 61

Thu, 01/15/2015 - 2:32pm

Cook County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, Jim Boyd, and Local Artist, Betsy Bowen, at Como Oil & Propane’s 2014 Great Place

Looking back over this past year, 2014 has brought a lot of firsts for the Moving Matters project and our communities. Two of these firsts (and most popular on our website) were the Great Place Race and the start of the Highway 61 Redesign (Highway 61 Revisited).

In 2015, the Great Place Race will be reborn as the Great Place Project. This joint initiative with the Cook County Chamber of Commerce will continue to give small grants to spur the creation of more great places in Cook County and Grand Portage. Stay tuned for the 2015 Great Place Project application! Wondering what Great Places were created in 2014? Check them out here.

The Highway 61 Revisited process will continue in the new year, with the third public meeting on Tuesday, February 24th. Our community has come out in full force for these conversations about this vital corridor through Grand Marais. To complement this process, a Health Impact Assessment is also underway looking at the potential health impacts of this project on our community.
