Residents Help Shape Cook County’s Future
“Cook County’s Comprehensive Land Use Guide Plan will direct county decision making and investment toward creating a future where residents can prosper and enjoy a quality lifestyle within an unparalleled natural setting for which we are dedicated stewards,” said Shari Baker, chair of the County Plan Update Committee. To ensure that the updated plan fully reflects the desires of the community Baker, on behalf of the Comprehensive Plan Committee, invites Cook County residents and property owners to participate in a community planning session on Wednesday September 17, 2014 at the Cook County Community Center in Grand Marais. The session will run from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.
Residents are being asked to participate in this meeting where they will suggest ideas regarding how the county should look in 20 years in terms of land use, community appearance, economic vitality, and community life. They will also have the opportunity to offer specific action steps needed to achieve that desired future.
The ideas generated by the public will be a critical ingredient in formulating the draft plan which will then be offered for public review and comment later in the planning process. “It cannot be emphasized enough how important it is that the public use this opportunity to provide their ideas”, added Baker.
The County Planning and Zoning website (http://www.co.cook.mn.us) contains background materials on the current plan and the update process including the agenda for the public meeting. The public is encouraged to view the plan and documents related to a Desired Future Condition and offer their opinions on them via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), post Planning and Zoning Department, Cook County Courthouse, 411 W. 2nd Street, Grand Marais, MN 55604) or by talking with one of the committee members.
Members of the Plan Update Committee are: Shari Baker, Jim Boyd, Heidi Doo-Kirk, Tom Dwyer, Donald Fehr, Janice Hall, Marland Hansen, Jerry Hiniker, Charles Laboda, Bill Lane, Gary Maciejewski,Tina McKeever, Tim Nelson, Mike Schmelski,Tony Swader, Kristin DeArruda Wharton, and Kim Wolff. The public is encouraged to contact members to share their thoughts regarding land use and development or to contact the County Planning and Zoning office.
The County has retained the consultant team of John Powers of Applied Insights North and Tony Kroska of Community GIS, both of Duluth, to assist with the development of the updated plan.

Cook County folks- Does anyone know of a middle aged woman with blonde (maybe blonde/gray) hair who rides a three wheeled bike (one tire in the front, two in back) and has a yellow lab (or maybe golden retriever)?? My husband Sam was bit by her dog yesterday while biking up the pine mountain road, back behind pine mtn trailer court. The bite wasnt bad...but did break the skin. Not interested in pressing charges, just need to know the dog is current on vacinations.
We need to know by Tuesday or else it's three shots for Mr. Hedstrom!!!! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any ideas of who the owner is, or if you are the owner. Again, we DO NOT want to press charges, just want to know if the dog is up to date on vaccines.
