Cook County and the city of Grand Marais work together via the Cook County/Grand Marais Economic Development Authority (EDA) in a variety of ways. The EDA's list of initiatives includes the Cedar Grove Business Park in Grand Marais, partnering to bring workforce housing to Grand Marais and Lutsen,  working with the Minnesota Small Business Development Center to assist small businesses and more.

One of the major undertakings of the EDA, in fact the driving force for creation of the development authority, is the construction and maintenance of Superior National at Lutsen Golf Course. There have been some major renovations at the Lutsen golf course and some community members are wondering how that benefits the county overall. 

WTIP's Rhonda Silence reached out to EDA treasurer Scott Harrison to learn more about the EDA's role as management of the  golf course--and about how things are going now that the approximately $4 million renovation of the course is complete.
