The CapitolRiver Council advocates on behalf of District 17 residents, workers and property owners by identifying issues, engaging in conversations among people with different interests and perspectives, and making recommendations based on consensus.

We define an issue as a question or problem that the Saint Paul City Council (and / or Mayor, staff, appointed officials, etc.) could do something about, AND that CRC could engage stakeholders in discussions about that would lead to one or more recommendations being made.

CRC committees engage in discussions about issues at regular meetings.

CapitolRiver Council Project Management Form

Have an idea? Submit a project idea to the CRC!

This form gathers information about projects proposed and developed by the CRC and its members. ALL stakeholders are welcome to use this form (Project Proposals require you to list a board sponsor). CRC has limited funds and resources and we are counting on people to be champions of their own ideas.

If you're finding the Project Management form intimidating please feel free to fill out our much less intensive Questions & Comments Form and we can see if we can help you get started.

These forms are new and we welcome feedback.
