The City of Saint Paul and our partners are planning and delivering many projects downtown over the next several years.

Saint Paul is working hard to make sure that all the project teams are in sync and working towards our guiding plans and policies, such as our Climate Action and Resilience Plan. To do this, an internal team meets monthly, and our Downtown Transportation Planner is involved in all downtown projects for consistency and coordination. Contact us today to learn more

Guiding Plans & Policies 

There are several City of Saint Paul Policies and Plans that will be used to guide the improvements downtown.

Saint Paul For All: The 2040 Comprehensive Plan “Saint Paul For All” is Saint Paul’s “blueprint” for guiding development in the city over the next 20 years.

Climate Action & Resilience Plan: The Climate & Resilience Action Plan focuses on achieving carbon neutrality in city operations by 2030, and citywide by 2050.

Saint Paul River Balcony: The River Balcony is a 1.5-mile promenade that extends along downtown Saint Paul’s signature Mississippi River bluff and down to the river.

Capital City Bikeway Network Study & Design Guide: The Capital City Bikeway is a planned network of bicycle facilities throughout downtown Saint Paul. The bikeway network will connect to existing trails, effectively placing a majority of downtown within a few blocks of a bike and pedestrian trail. 

Complete Streets Planning: Two documents form the foundation of the City’s Complete Streets guidance: the Saint Paul Street Design Manual and the Complete Streets Action Plan.
