Saint Paul launches citywide blog

The City of Saint Paul today unveiled a citywide blog, Spotlight on Saint Paul, to help residents and visitors keep updated with important things happening within and around the city.

The blog will be updated regularly and feature posts from each city department that put a brief spotlight on happenings, information and programs throughout the city. It will regularly include city videos, photographs and interactive content. "There are more great things going on in Saint Paul than any one person can keep tabs on,” Saint Paul Mayor Chris Coleman said. “Spotlight on Saint Paul is the perfect way to feature things that people may not otherwise hear about.” Today’s blog includes a synopsis of city videos, an update on the Penfield Project, and the city’s plan to gear up for National Night Out in 2013.
