Your Needs Help Shape Our Plans

CapitolRiver Council is about to enter a strategic planning process, and we cannot do it without your help. The first step is gathering information via this survey, and also community listening sessions. So, if you can please fill out the survey that follows, we’d really appreciate it. And if you’re able to attend one of our listening sessions, we’d love to see you there (more info will be available on our website & in future e-newsletters).

Because your feedback is critical to the success of this planning process, we’re offering a chance at an incentive. 2 survey participants will be drawn at random to win a $50 gift certificate to the Saint Paul Grill!

The survey can be found here:

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer our questions!

Streetcar Feasibility Study: Open Houses

The City of Saint Paul has recently completed work on the second phase of the Streetcar Feasibility Study.  The study materials are posted online on our website:

The City will be holding two open houses on August 28, from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and from 4:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. at the Rondo Community Outreach Library at 461 N. Dale Street.  Please see the flyer for more information:  OpenHouseFlyer

Things for the neighborhood to consider include:

  • Is there a demand or desire for improved local transit along the corridor?
  • Is there a neighborhood interest in increased housing densities and mixed-use development along the corridor?
  • What does your current district plan say about mixed use development along the given corridor?

Please attend one of the upcoming open houses and weigh in!

Saint Paul Open Streets

SP Open Streets LogoOpen Streets events bring together families, neighbors and friends to mingle, recreate, dine, play and shop in their community in a safe, car-free environment. This is not a race. Participants can explore the street that is open only to foot, bicycle and skate traffic. In addition to bicycling, walking and skating, there are programmed recreational activities for all ages along the street. Some of these activities might include yoga, zumba, games and dance lessons. There will also be musical performances and classes on bike safety and repair.

Date: Sunday, September 15, 2013
Time: 11am – 6pm
Location: On University Avenue between Hamline Avenue – Marion Street in St. Paul
