The Duluth Downtown Waterfront District is a Special Service District managed by the Greater Downtown Council. The District encompasses 90 blocks in the heart of Duluth. Property owners within the district boundaries pay a fee for enhanced services and programs, with the goal of improving the safety, cleanliness and economic vitality of the Downtown Waterfront.
The Duluth Downtown Waterfront District was established January 1, 2005. Since that time, the DDWD has worked to stabilize and improve the downtown and Canal Park’s environment, thereby strengthening its competitiveness in the region. We provide services and programs such as the Clean & Safe Team, Streetscape Flowers and Hanging Baskets and enhanced marketing/events. Together, we are building a stronger central business district!
