Capitol Rice community gathering

Listening to the Community on Rice Street

Community input was gathered from a design event jointly conducted by the City of Saint Paul, Ramsey County, and the CAAPB on Tuesday, October 3rd. This is part of a larger process that includes research on real estate trends, mobility, business access, parking, safety - and will include on-street interactions, stakeholder interviews, and community gatherings. A Ramsey County representative was present to gain information for their study of Rice Street from University to Larpenteur. The research and activities are sponsored by the City's Commercial Vitality Zone (CVZ) pre-development funding.

Planning for Capitol Rice

CAAPB Staff is working with City of Saint Paul Planning & Economic Development (PED) to conduct planning for Lower Rice Street, powered by the City of Saint Paul’s Commercial Vitality Zone (CVZ) Program. The area of focus is the four blocks of the Rice Street commercial corridor from University Avenue to Pennsylvania. The outcome of the Predevelopment stage is formation of a larger strategy that would compete with other Saint Paul CVZ’s for larger public investment aimed at incentivizing reinvestment and redevelopment.
