|North Shore Management Board
|The North Shore Management Board is a ten-member Joint Powers Board that contains a representative from all local units of government that exercise zoning authority on the North Shore of Lake Superior. Most members joined the NSMB when it was originally created in 1987. Silver Creek Township joined the NSMB in 1999 upon the creation of the zoning ordinance for the Castle Danger Subordinate Service District, which is administered by the Township. Lake County administers other areas within the North Shore Management Zone in Silver Creek Township. |
The North Shore Management Board is responsible for defining the minimum zoning standards for Minnesota’s North Shore of Lake Superior. The Board’s area of authority is property that lies between Lake Superior and a line that is 300 feet inland from Highway 61 or a line that is 1,000 feet from Lake Superior, whichever is greater.
The North Shore Management Board finished an update of its Management Plan in June of 2004. The NSMB is now working with the participating entities to implement the new regulations.
The NSMB has two subcommittees. The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) is made up of zoning administrators and agency officials with interests in North Shore land use, and the Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) has a membership of interested citizens.
The NSMB meets about four times a year as does the TAC. The CAC meets as requested by the Board.
