West Side Flats Master Plan
The City of Saint Paul Department of Planning and Economic Development (PED) has begun a community-based planning process to update the West Side Flats Master Plan and Development Guidelines
, adopted in 2001. The Planning Commission created a community task force, chaired by a Planning Commissioner, to advise City staff and consultants during the planning process. In addition, a series of community meetings will be held to get input from the broader public.
The original West Side Flats Master Plan contains the community’s vision for future development on the 40 acres bounded by Wabasha Street, Plato Boulevard, Robert Street and the Mississippi River. In the 10+ years since adoption of the Plan, a US Bank call center has been built, the Fillmore Street railroad crossing has been reopened, and West Side Flats Apartments has begun construction. The Saint Paul Planning Commission felt that it was time to take a fresh look at the existing Plan, and to expand the
planning area to take in the 60+ acres east of Robert Street,
which is likely to see development interest over the next 10 years.
Community Open Houses
The City of Saint Paul will be hosting three community open houses for the West Side Flats Master Plan and Development Guidelines Update. The first open house was held on April 1, 2013.
