Superior Days planning underway

The 33rd annual Superior Days in February is quickly approaching. In preparation for that our Extension Office has been hosting several meetings with the public to identify issues to bring up to the Capitol. Superior Days began in 1985 as a grassroots lobbying effort to share needs and concerns of Superior and Douglas County and has since expanded to include northwest Wisconsin.

The next Superior Days planning meet is at noon Monday at the Brule Town Hall, 5820 Maple St., and 6 p.m. at the Government Center, 1316 N. 14th St., Superior. All are welcome to attend. For information, visit

Department Managers meet at 9 a.m. Tuesday in Room 270 of the Government Center. Also on Tuesday, the Land Conservation Committee meets at 10 a.m. in Room 207C at the Douglas County Courthouse, 1313 Belknap St.
