Ways to Engage
Watch this space for additional opportunities to get involved with the Anti-Displacement Plan and Community Wealth Building Study.
Community Dinner and Open House
Join us for an upcoming dinner and a public open house to discuss the City of Saint Paul's Anti-Displacement and Community Wealth Building Study:
So far, the study:
- identified displacement trends,
- engaged residents and businesses on issues important to them,
- evaluated existing anti-displacement and wealth building programs, and
- developed a menu of possible strategies to lessen displacement and build wealth.
Come and inform the Anti-Displacement and Community Wealth Building Study by giving us your feedback on what strategies you think Saint Paul should consider to support homeownership, new housing, housing affordability and renter protections.
A survey that allowed respondents to share perspectives on the housing challenges facing Saint Paul residents was open until January 13, 2023.
Coffee and Community Conversations
Multiple Coffee and Community Conversation sessions were held in December 2022 and January 2023. This was an opportunity for residents to share their vision to help inform future housing policies and strategies for the City of Saint Paul.
Small Business Focus Groups
Two small business focus groups were held in March 2023 at Osborn370 (in downtown) and the Latino Economic Development Center (on the east side). The discussions will help inform future investments by the City that can benefit the small business community.
Small Business Survey
A survey focused on small business owners was open through March 19, 2023. The purpose was to gather information on the pressures that small businesses may be facing as the City changes and new development projects arise.
