Rice Street - Larpenteur Avenue Gateway Area Vision Plan

Public Workshop

A final public workshop is scheduled to present and gain feedback on the draft vision plan.  

Planning Process 

The cities of Maplewood, Roseville, and St. Paul are creating a vision plan for the Rice Street-Larpenteur Avenue Gateway Corridor.  Throughout 2017 the cities will be cooperatively developing a vision for the short- and long-term future of the area.  The purpose of the project is to understand and respond to barriers, challenges, benefits, and opportunities associated with changes in land use, access, transit services, and other facilities around key nodes in the corridor; and identify potential redevelopment sites throughout the study area.  A final vision plan for the area should be complete by December 2017.
