On October 14, 2015 the City of Saint Paul, Metropolitan Council, and Saint Paul Port Authority approved a Joint Powers Agreement to negotiate a lease agreement that would result in the potential development of a Major League Soccer stadium on the 10-acre site at the northeast corner of Snelling Ave. and I-94, previously used for transit vehicle storage.
Eventual redevelopment of the entire 34.5-acre superblock bounded by University Ave., Snelling Ave., I-94 and Pascal St. will be guided by a master plan developed by property owner RK Midway LLC. Both the potential stadium site plan and master plan will be reviewed and approved by the City of Saint Paul. There will be numerous opportunities for community input throughout the review process, including a Snelling-Midway Community Advisory Committee, community open houses, Open Saint Paul
(online engagement tool), and public hearings at both the Planning Commission and City Council.
The first public meeting will be held on Monday, November 30 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Midpointe Event Center
, located at 415 N Pascal Street in Saint Paul. Topics will include community use and access, jobs, adjacent green space, and much more, for the stadium site and master site plans for the 34.5 acre redevelopment site.
