TIP Amendments and Administrative Modifications

We follow the process that is detailed in our approved Public Involvement Plan (PIP) to manage all alterations to the Duluth and Superior Area TIPs.  It describes what level and type of changes to the programmed projects require a formal amendment, approved by Resolution of the MIC Policy Board, versus those that need only an administrative modification (text edits).

Not every change to a project triggers a formal amendment process.  Typically, ‘minor’ changes (Administrative Modifications) and ‘major’ changes (Amendments) are distinguished by whether the change increases the total project cost by 50% or more.
