6 Things You Didn’t Know Exist On The City Of Duluth Website
The City of Duluth has a great website with lots of resources and information, I've dug around and found the 6 best things that you might find useful and informational.
Beyond The Yellow Ribbon is a program that allows different organizations and groups in the community to work together to create a network that can support Service Members and their families. Service Members, present and past, can find out what resources are available to them and their families and community members get information on how to help. Thank you to the City of Duluth and those involved with Duluth becoming a Beyond The Yellow Ribbon Community!
Road Construction Information
The City of Duluth has recently launched a new campaign to help restore the canopy of our urban forest. They have dedicated $5000 towards the cost associated with purchase and planting of trees. What does this mean to you as a homeowner? You simply agree to care for the tree they plant on your boulevard for the first three years of its life and pay half its cost which would amount to $25. You even have the opportunity to choose the tree you would most like. Here's the online form to get yours.
Once again, the City of Duluth is proving that they have gone “green”. Why buy a rain barrel? It's environmentally friendly. The City suggests it because it's a FREE option when water used doesn't need to be treated, like for drinking or cooking. Since drinking water is a precious commodity, we might as well take advantage of what Mother Nature provides. Rain water preserves our resources. It's also been said that plants grow better with rainwater (don't know if that one is proven or not). While the City does not actually “sell” rain barrels, they do give you some options on where you can purchase one.
