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.
