Rice-Larpenteur Gateway Area Vision Plan
The cities of Saint Paul, Maplewood and Roseville, with collaboration from Ramsey County, are developing a short- and long-term vision plan for the Rice Street-Larpenteur Avenue area. The project is aimed at understanding and responding to the barriers, challenges, benefits and opportunities associated with changes in land use, access, transit services and other facilities around key nodes in the corridor. A shared goal is identification of potential redevelopment in the area.
The study area is currently defined by Arlington Avenue (south), County Road B (north), McMenemy Street (east), and Dale Street (west).
A consulting team from Perkins + Will is assisting the cities with the visioning process.
A gathering will take place on Thursday, June 7 from 6 - 8 p.m. at 1700 Rice Street (Maplewood) and 1685 Rice Street (Roseville). There will be interactive stations, a chance to see the short and long-term vision plans for the corridor, treats, games and activities. Crossing guards will be present to help attendees navigate.

The most recent community workshop was held on October 26 at the Community School of Excellence in St. Paul. Two previous community workshops were held on June 14 and June 21 at the Washington Technology Magnet School in St. Paul. The purpose of the community workshops is to provide residents and businesses with project updates and information and to solicit their views on how they would like to see the study area develop. The workshop materials can be found below.
