Update July 25, 2018: The City of Duluth has 4 Interim Use Permits available for Vacation Dwelling Units within the 60 cap limit.  The Planning & Construction Services Department had been taking Letters of Intent (LOI) to apply for an Interim Use Permit starting on June 19th and stopped taking them on July 9th. The department held a drawing on July 24, 2018, of the 18 letters of intent that were received.  Click here to see the drawing results. The first 4 will be given 60 days to submit a complete application to the One Stop Office, the remainder will be on the waiting list.  Failure to submit a complete application within the 60 days will result in going to the next party on the waiting list.  It is anticipated that a new round of LOI's will open next summer.
