Chapter 73 Ordinance Update

After the Heritage Preservation Commission (HPC) meeting on May 24, where public testimony was heard on proposed changes to the Ch. 73 Legislative Code, HPC commissioners voted to form a committee to re-look at some of the elements of the proposed changes.  Subsequently, on June 14, City of St. Paul Planning and Economic Development director Dr. Bruce Corrie issued a statement advising that HPC would be suspending its efforts on Ch. 73 for the foreseeable future.

The Summit Hill Association, which had been planning on hosting a public input session in June on the proposed changes, has postponed those plans in light of this information.  We will revisit the matter at such time as HPC issues revised language on Ch. 73.  Thanks to all who shared their comments ahead of the May 24 HPC meeting.
