Our Mission

To direct the development of a North Shore Management Plan with strategies for environmental protection and orderly growth along the North Shore of Lake Superior.

Our History

Minnesota’s Statewide Shoreland Management Program was conceived by the Legislature in 1969 as a cooperative effort of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MN DNR) and local units of government.

In 1981, the Legislative Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCMR) funded a program evaluation that identified Lake Superior as a distinctive management unit, not adequately addressed by the existing Statewide Shoreland Management Program.

Recommendations from this evaluation called for the initiation and support of a local government effort to develop a shoreland management plan for the North Shore of Lake Superior.
