The City of Saint Paul and the Ford Site Planning Task Force cordially invite residents from Saint Paul and the Twin Cities metropolitan area to a public meeting to hear how redevelopment of the Ford site can use energy efficiency, a mix of energy sources, and smart design to achieve a “net zero development” by generating as much energy as it uses.
Please note: This meeting will solely focus on future energy systems for the Ford site. Future public meetings will address parks, transportation and land use.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

In December 2012, the Saint Paul Planning Commission initiated a planning update of the Shepard Davern Small Area Plan as an addendum of the Highland Park District Plan, and initiated a zoning study to consider potential rezoning of some properties in the same area. Over 13 months, city staff worked with a Shepard Davern community task force to identify priorities to guide future planning, civic investments and land use. This work will be advanced through a revised plan update and rezoning of some properties. Information on the proposed plan update and property rezonings to be considered by the Saint Paul City Council can be found at www.stpaul.gov/sheparddavern or by contacting Michelle Beaulieu at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651.266.6620.
To provide official comments to the City Council on the proposed plan updates or rezonings, attend the January 21st public hearing, or send written comments by 4:30 p.m. on January 20th email@example.com Michelle Beaulieu, Planning and Economic Development, 25 W. 4th Street, 1300, Saint Paul MN 55102.
