The latest concept plan for improvements to Fairmount Park and the Lake Superior Zoo was presented by a consultant last night at the Duluth Parks Commission meeting. The concept envisions a renewed zoo in a roughly 10-acre footprint that includes ADA accessible pathways, renewed and repurposed exhibits damaged by the 2012 flood, enhanced visitor services, and converts a portion of the existing zoo into public park space. The plan is estimated at $15 million and has $2.7 million of half-and-half funding allotted to it.

Comments can be submitted to Duluth’s Parks and Recreation Division until Feb. 15 to allow the consultants to analyze them for the upcoming Feb. 22 presentation and public hearing at 5:15 p.m. in the Duluth City Council Chambers, to be followed by a Parks Commission public hearing in room 303.

I can't wait for the Porcupine Raptor exhibit.  That sounds like one badass animal.

In recent news it was reported that the dude whose Facebook account was suspended because he listed his name as Phuc Dat Bich, was found to be bluffing. Finally, someone who used their "15 minutes" for a good cause. It should however be noted that with a billion plus Asians in the world, some unsuspecting hero to teenage American males across the land probably does have that name. 

So to all these ridiculously over-bloated, taxpayer dollar pissing-away projects as only Duluth can, like Spirit Mountain, the Aquarium,  the Animal Prison, the Omni, and of course who could forget the Red Plan, I say "Phuc Dat, Bich."

And thanks again to Ramos's tireless reportage that lets tax paying folks know what part of their shorts is being stuffed. Because of him, we at least know how and why it's sore down there all the time.
