Town Hall Forum – Ford Site Zoning and Public Realm Plan – Tuesday, August 29th

Tuesday, August 29th
7:00 p.m.
Gloria Dei Lutheran Church
700 Snelling Avenue South

From Councilman Tolbert:

The Ford site Zoning and Public Realm Plan will soon be before the City Council for our consideration. Over the past several years I have spent significant time listening to residents at multiple large public meetings, as well as more recently at over a dozen smaller meetings in people’s homes. On Tuesday, August 29th I will be holding a Town Hall forum at 7:00 p.m. at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church on 700 Snelling Avenue South. This is an opportunity for neighbors to learn more about the proposed Ford plan, ask me questions, and share their thoughts. I’m looking forward to a respectful, thoughtful, and constructive discussion about the future of the Ford site.

Please note that the Gloria Dei parking lot is also used as shuttle parking for the State Fair. I encourage people to walk, bike, or take the A line bus to the event. My apologies for the limited parking, but I wanted to ensure we had a space large enough to fit all who may be interested in attending.

Reimagine the Railway – Studying New Uses for the Ford Spur

Community Conversation for Reimagine the Railway: Studying new uses for the Ford Spur

Please join us to learn more about this exciting opportunity to “Reimagine the Railway” and think about new uses for the Ford Spur – a rail line that once served the Ford Motor site from downtown Saint Paul. You will hear more about the progress on this study and will have a chance to give the City your thoughts on concepts for how this corridor will look and function in the future. We hope to see you there!

However, the Policy Advisory Committee (PAC) met on July 13 and narrowed the options to six alternatives (route and vehicle).
