The City of Grand Marais has been working with the Sawtooth Mountain Clinic through the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP) for several years to make Cook County a more walking-friendly community. In the summer and fall of 2018, that included the formation of a steering community and some public meetings asking, “Where do you want to go in the City of Grand Marais?”

That feedback was collected and compiled into a Pedestrian Plan, which was introduced to the community in April 2018 in draft form.
At the Wednesday, August 14 city council meeting, the plan was adopted unanimously.

WTIP’s Rhonda Silence spoke with Grand Marais Mayor Jay Arrowsmith DeCoux about the plan.
