Provide Your Input on Draft Ford Site Plans

Over the past decade, we have heard thousands of ideas from community members for how to bring the site to life. Many of the suggestions and ideas have been incorporated into the proposed Ford Site Zoning and Public Realm Master Plan, which calls for a vibrant mixed-use urban village to be integrated into the existing community. On July 28, 2017, the Saint Paul Planning Commission recommended approval of the master plan and forwarded it to the Saint Paul City Council for further review and adoption. The City Council is expected to hold a public hearing on the draft plans this fall.
