Rice & Larpenteur Vision Planning Effort  

The cities of Saint Paul, Maplewood and Roseville, with collaboration from Ramsey County, are developed a short- and long-term vision plan for the Rice Street-Larpenteur Avenue area. The project was aimed at understanding and responding to the barriers, challenges, benefits and opportunities associated with changes in land use, access, transit services and other facilities around key nodes in the corridor. A shared goal is identification of potential redevelopment in the area.

​Rice-Larpenteur Gateway Area Planning Committee

Ramsey County and the collaborating cities have set up a Gateway Area Planning Committee (GPC) made up of citizens, businesses, representatives of non-profit organizations and staff members from the three cities and county. The committee will work with the consultant team to develop and evaluate Rice Street-Larpenteur Avenue Gateway Master Plan alternatives, and make recommendations on a preferred plan. A vision plan for the area is expected to be complete by December 2017. 

Community Advisory Group (CAG)

A group of stakeholders from each city made up of residents, businesses, planning commissioners, members of neighborhoods and business organizations will provide community input to help shape the development of the plan for the project area.
