Land Use Committee
The city partners with local district councils to organize annual citywide drop-off events for residents to properly dispose of large refuse items and recyclable materials
During the 12 days of the State Fair, the neighborhood is packed with cars, pedestrians, and shuttle buses. We’ve assembled a guide to help neighbors understand the rules about things like Yard Parking, Street Vendors, Peddlers, and who to contact if you have problems or want a permit.
The purpose of the committee is to address land use issues affecting District 10 community residents and businesses, including zoning, development, redevelopment, planning, licensing, property rights and community values. The committee works to ensure community members are aware of land use issues, and invite dialogue on issues and decisions affecting the community. The committee facilitates meetings and discussions on land use issues between community members, businesses and the City of St Paul, ensuring that the community’s voice is heard.
The Land Use committee meets on a monthly basis, typically on the first Wednesday at 7 p.m. All renters, homeowners, and other community members are welcome to attend and participate in the meeting. Upcoming meeting dates, times and locations are posted on the District 10 meeting calendar.
