Station Area Planning
Station area planning is a collaborative process that identifies ways to promote safe and direct station access, as well as transit-oriented development (TOD) within a walking distance (1/2 mile, generally) of future transit stations. TOD creates compact, mixed-use communities near transit where people can enjoy easy access to jobs and services.
Ramsey County, in partnership with the City of Saint Paul, is leading station area planning for the Riverview Corridor Modern Streetcar Project between 2021 and 2023 as part of the Engineering and Pre-Environmental Phase of work.
The Policy Advisory Committee has formed a Station Area Planning Task Force to guide the creation of station area plans for each of the new Riverview Corridor stations in Saint Paul. Consisting of members from the Saint Paul community, the Task Force meets approximately monthly to provide input and help inform station area plans. Community engagement and existing city, county and regional policies also inform the station area plans. The goal is to provide a vision for each station to thrive as a result of the transit investment, develop supporting policies and identify specific implementation steps for each plan.
Help us plan the St. Clair, Randolph and Otto station areas
The current focus of Riverview Corridor station area planning work is West 7th at St. Clair, Randolph and Otto avenues. Please take a quick survey to tell us how you experience these neighborhoods and suggest improvements. Your responses will help the Station Area Planning Task Force as they develop plans to guide future growth and investment in these neighborhoods.
In 2022, we’ll be seeking feedback on other planned Riverview Corridor station areas.
