2040 Comprehensive Plan - Saint Paul For All
Saint Paul is a community that is welcoming to and a place of opportunity for people of all incomes, ages, races, ethnicities and abilities. It accomplishes this by addressing the place-based dimensions of our neighborhoods: embracing growth; offering a wide range of housing choices for its diverse residents; providing a transportation system that meets the needs of pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, riders and drivers; preserving, celebrating and building on our histories; and supporting infill development that sensitively accommodates a growing, aging and increasingly diverse population. Saint Paul is defined and enhanced by its location on the Mississippi River - an economic, environmental, cultural, historic and recreational amenity that enriches our quality of life and economic prosperity.
On June 19, 2019, the City Council approved the 2040 Comprehensive Plan - both the citywide chapters and the Mississippi River Corridor Critical Area Chapter. The vote came after 3+ years of public engagement and public hearings at both Planning Commission and City Council. It must now be reviewed and approved by the Metropolitan Council before becoming final.
