Grand Marais HIghway 61 redesign may receive TAP funds

Thu, 03/26/2015 - 9:35am

Highlighting the March 24 county board meeting was the announcement by Jared Beldez of the Arrowhead Regional Development Council (ARDC) who said out of eight grant requests totaling $2.8 million that the Northeast Minnesota Area Transportation Partnership (TAP) received, it recommended awarding $600,000 to the Grand Marais Highway 61 redesign project.

Beldez said that TAP only had $900,000 to grant this year, and only one other project, the St. Louis Trail Project, was selected to receive $300,000.  

The Highway 61 Redesign project has been getting suggestions from citizens through meetings and online about ways to improve safety and enhance the main corridor through the city. Part of that goal is to build a continuous pedestrian and bike path in the highway corridor along with making storm water improvements.

Although the two grants haven’t been formally approved, Beldez said a board would review requests on April 9, with announcements coming on April 15.

Senator Klobuchar calls for action to preserve the monarch butterfly

Thu, 03/26/2015 - 9:33am

U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) is calling for action to preserve the monarch butterfly, whose population has dropped by 90 percent since the 1990s.

Klobuchar sent a bipartisan letter with Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) urging the administration to pursue public-private partnerships to help save the monarch. She recently joined the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for an event announcing the agency’s new preservation efforts.

 In a letter to the Departments of Interior, Agriculture, and Transportation, Klobuchar and Collins highlighted the need to build on existing efforts to preserve the butterfly by launching new partnerships that will help stop its decline. Specifically, the senators proposed new public-private partnerships including planting milkweed in electric utility rights of way, which would not only benefit migrating monarch butterflies but could also reduce costs for utility companies for vegetation management.

 Klobuchar also attended an event today with USFWS, where the agency announced a cooperative agreement with the National Wildlife Federation on projects to promote monarch butterfly habitat and a new initiative with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation that will leverage public-private partnerships to strengthen conservation projects.

 “From school yards to back yards, everyone can play a part in helping preserve the monarch butterfly by planting milkweed in their communities,” Klobuchar said. “With the butterfly rapidly disappearing, I am pleased to see the Fish and Wildlife Service taking positive steps to reverse its decline. But we all must do more. It will take all hands on deck to protect the butterfly from extinction, and I will continue to call on public agencies, the private sector and American citizens to join together in the effort to protect the monarch butterfly.”
