Parkland Dedication

Effective October 3, 2015, The City of Saint Paul will enact a revised parkland dedication ordinance. Under the revised ordinance, any development that increases the number of residential dwelling units, Increases the floor area of commercial, industrial, or storage buildings, or any combination thereof, will be required to dedicate land for park space as determined by the City Council or pay a fee in lieu of dedicating land.

For newly platted land or larger developments, a consultation with the Department of Parks and Recreation should be set-up prior to proceeding beyond the initial concept stage of the project. During this consultation Parks Staff will determine the feasibility of a land dedication or if the fees would be the preferable option for your project.

Please contact Mike Kimble, with the Department of Parks and Recreation, at 651-266-6417 for more information on parkland dedication or to set-up a consultation meeting.
