The new residential/commercial, mixed-use development slated for the Woodland Middle School site represents one of the most practical, sustainable approaches to campus perimeter development ever proposed for Duluth. It is important, therefore, that any impediments to its final blueprint be resolved quickly.

At issue is the location of the entry to the new development, which should correspond to the long-discussed new gateway entrance to the University of Minnesota Duluth. As reported in a recent News Tribune article (“UMD ‘grand entrance’ could help Woodland development,” Feb. 22), UMD will be initiating a campus master planning process to address this grand entrance. “There is a desire by UMD to have a grand entrance,” stated UMD spokeswoman Sue Banovetz. “Where that will be located is up in the air.”
