The City Parks and Recreation Department will engage community members to inform and develop a Plan for Summit Avenue that reviews the corridor from the Mississippi River to Downtown Saint Paul. This Plan will evaluate opportunities, constraints, and feasibility of a regional trail facility within the corridor and will serve as a guide to future transportation, pedestrian, and parkway improvements.
Funding for the Plan has been secured from the Parks and Trails Legacy Grant.
