Happy belated Valentine’s Day downtown!
Saint Paul was declared the Most Romantic City in America in recent years and yesterday demonstrated that we still got it. I was happy to pick up treats at Legacy Chocolates and a token of my affection at Gypsy Moon, both in the beautiful Pioneer Endicott building. Between that and what is always a great day of business for all of our restaurants, I feel like our downtown continues to represent itself well as the most romantic city.
Over the past several months, the Downtown Alliance has been studying best practices in other downtowns, and working to articulate our vision for downtown Saint Paul. This has included a number of conversations about local and state policy changes that would support our goals for growth and vitality. This week we had the opportunity to visit with folks at the Capital River Council about these ideas. More to come on this, but I want to thank the staff and volunteers for inviting me to present our ideas.
PS - Congratulations to GreaterMSP on naming
as the new CEO. Peter’s work has been really helpful in Saint Paul and the entire region. He will be fantastic in his new role as the head honcho over there!
See you all around (down)town,
The Saint Paul Downtown Alliance
