We pursue projects to continually increase understanding of Minnesota’s Superior shoreline. Find some examples below.
North Shore Management Plan
Guiding document that outlines the Board’s work load and establishes zoning minimum requirements for the ‘Management Zone’ along Minnesota’s Lake Superior coastline.
Coastal Erosion Hazard Mapping
Coastal erosion impacts the Lake Superior North Shore community and environment by stressing Lake Superior water quality and nearshore biological communities through increased erosion and Coastal community infrastructure, economy, and resiliency considering increasing storm events. Current coastal erosion hazard mapping data does exist to mitigate and plan for stressors on the coastal community, but is not consistent, thorough, or readily available to the public. Currently, the NSMB is undertaking updating the existing data set to represent current conditions.
