The historic NorShor Theatre in downtown Duluth is one City Council approval away from beginning restoration - a project that will mean a long-awaited fix for an eyesore in a revitalized part of town.
The Duluth Economic Development Authority voted unanimously last week to approve a development agreement to refurbish the 1910 theater on Superior Street. Now the Duluth City Council is expected take up the issue Monday night, although some council members have talked about tabling it for a week for further study.
The vision for the $30.5 million project is for the theater to become the hub of the cityâ€™s historic downtown, in an area recently christened the Historic Arts and Theatre District.
