Residents and business owners on St. Paul's west side, in the District del Sol and in Highland Village, may soon be signing off on a new community plan to improve transportation, housing, public health and economic development in the area.
The 83-page West Side Community Plan suggests adding a Bus Rapid Transit system on Robert Street, reported the Pioneer Press, as well as adding to the bike trails of Wabasha Street, Smith Avenue and Stryker Avenue. Other possible bike trail additions include routes on George and Annapolis streets.
The plan also mentions three areas for possible redevelopment, reported Mass Transit Magazine. Multi-use buildings containing retailers, offices, apartments and civic institutions would all be included in the redevelopment.
A public hearing will be held before the Planning Commission at 8:30 a.m. Dec. 14 in Room 40 of St. Paul City Hall, reported the Pioneer Press.
