We are excited to announce that the Saint Paul Downtown Alliance will be piloting a
this summer, as part of our research into a potential business improvement district in downtown Saint Paul. The Stewardship Program will deploy full-time staff in two key zones to ensure they are vibrant, welcoming, clean and safe. We will also be funding community activities, art projects and social activations in the same areas, providing a multiplier effect for all the efforts and investments aimed at building a vibrant downtown.
A huge thanks to the Knight Foundation, John and Ruth Huss, and Dr. Lowell Hellervik for helping fund this pilot program, and to Block by Block – a national organization that operates business improvement districts – which we will be working with to coordinate staff.
