A note from the president
Hello friends,

Despite this heat wave, downtown has been bounding with activity this week.

From the dairy food truck festival and the Italian car show near Rice Park earlier this week to the Lowertown Blues and Funk Festival kicking off tonight in Mears Park, it's a great reminder that our downtown is a hub for all kinds hobbies and events and that there's a good chance we've got something for you.

There’s also exciting downtown developments moving forward this summer, including Ramsey County’s RiversEdge development. We’re looking forward to learning more next week at the July 23 workshop!

In other exciting news, the Star Tribune reported this morning that parts of downtown now have 5G connectivity. This is an incredible asset and sets Saint Paul apart as one of the first cities to have 5G coverage.

Enjoy the weekend!

See you all around (down)town,

Joe Spencer

The Street Team spent the week removing stubborn stains and gum spots around the priority zones. This chemical-free process can make a huge difference in our streetscape.
Less than a week away from our First Annual Meeting!
There's still time if you haven't registered for our First Annual Meeting!

You and your colleagues are invited to join the downtown community as we celebrate the success and accomplishments from year one of the Saint Paul Downtown Alliance.

Weather permitting* we will gather on the rear exterior plaza of Osborn370 for a short program followed by mingling and light refreshments.

This will be a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the work happening to make downtown Saint Paul a more vibrant place to work, live and play.

*In the event of rain this event will move inside Osborn370.
