A note from the president
Hello friends,

Streets of Summer continues its roll out this week with a kick-off event in Landmark Plaza tomorrow at noon – hope to see you all there! It'll be a great opportunity to meet our Street Team and some of the folks behind the placemaking projects happening this summer, not to mention food trucks and live music to enjoy. You'll also get to see a Milligan Studios project called Uplift, a tribute to the first passenger flight on a hot air balloon, which really happened in downtown Saint Paul!

Congratulations are also in order to Infor – we’re all excited to have you extend your commitment to downtown Saint Paul and properly rename the building in your honor. We love having you in our downtown Saint Paul family. 

See you all around (down)town,

Joe Spencer
