2040 Comprehensive Plan - Saint Paul For All

Comprehensive Plan cover

Saint Paul is updating its comprehensive plan – a forward-thinking vision that will guide the city’s development over the next 20 years. The draft plan can be viewed in-full here, or by topic/chapter here.

​Written testimony was received from November 2, 2018 to January 14, 2019 and a public hearing was held at the Planning Commission on Friday January 11, 2019.  Staff is currently analyzing the hundreds of thoughtful comments received and will present a report to the Planning Commission for their consideration, along with the full set of comments.  Your input is truly valued as we move through the plan adoption process.

The Mississippi River Corridor Critical Area Chapter is being heard separately from the other chapters.


Saint Paul’s Vision for 2040

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.
