Neighborhood Plan Update...

Updating Our Neighborhood Comprehensive Plan

Our Neighborhood Comprehensive Plan (“Plan”) is a part of the City of St. Paul’s Comprehensive Plan and it directs all aspects of the Summit Hill Association’s work as the district planning council for this neighborhood.  Our Plan also informs all decisions the City makes about development and activities in our neighborhood. You can review the current plan, approved by the St. Paul City Council in 2006, to see what was recommended after an extensive community input process.

Our Plan needs to be updated and revised every 10 years.  SHA convened a committee to bring the neighborhood together to review and update our Plan.  The committee meets monthly at the Linwood Recreation Center, and our next meeting is January 30, 2018 at 7:00 pm in the Senior Lounge. 

The first step in bringing neighborhood participation to the process of updating our Plan will be an online survey which will be available in January, 2018.  If you live in, or own property or a business in the neighborhood, please complete the survey and make your ideas and views known!  The link for the survey will on this page in January, so please check back in January. 

After we compile and analyze the results of the survey, we will do a follow up survey and begin focus groups.  We want everyone who lives and owns property and businesses in District 16 to participate in the survey, focus groups and additional activities that will be occurring.  The best way to stay informed is to be on the SHA email list.  Please add your name to that list here!

We believe that a limited amount of professional planning assistance will make our plan the best it can be.  In order to pay for that, we need to do some fundraising and have planned several events including book signings and discussions about the history of our neighborhood, and a dinner with Lynne Rossetto Kasper on March 26, 2018 at Cook of Crocus Hill.  Please watch this page for more information about this event.  Tickets will be available in January.
