Creating Vibrant Places and Spaces
"Whether it is renovating the historic Palace Theatre or building on the opportunities that result from the Green Line’s robust ridership, I remain dedicated to creating vibrant places and spaces, and ensuring that our city positively impacts residents of all ages and backgrounds."
— Mayor Chris Coleman
Mayor Chris Coleman is committed to creating vibrant places and spaces throughout Saint Paul as a way to encourage economic development, attract residents and visitors, and create a more livable city that appeals to everyone.
The city is investing in a number of projects that are diverse in scope but focused on the same goal of putting people first.
