Regional Priority Projects
In 2004 when the NSMB finished the North Shore Management Plan Update a number of projects or future efforts were identified as priorities for the NSMB. The NSMB will continue to work on this list of projects in the upcoming years. In July of 2006 the North Shore Management Board received funds from Minnesota's Lake Superior Coastal Program to complete three projects including Node Identification, Wastewater Assessment, and Ridgeline Viewshed Identification and Assessment.

These projects were completed in June 2007:

North Shore Node Definition Project

North Shore Wastewater Assessment Report

North Shore Ridgeline Viewshed Identification and Assessment Report
The map for this project can be viewed HERE

In July 2007 the NSMB began work on three more Regional Priority Projects that include the following projects that were completed in the Spring of 2008:

Innovative Planned Unit Development Research

Erosion Hazard Area Planning Definition Process

North Shore GIS Assessment
