D15 Plan

District 15 Plan

Last summer (2017) Highland Park residents had a chance to list their ideas about what the neighborhood should look like in the future by completing a survey launched by the Highland District Council.  That survey was designed to guide the development of a ten year plan the city of St. Paul requires community councils to develop every decade.

Now it is time to finalize the new plan (District 15 Comprehensive Plan). The plan will guide development and maintenance of commercial areas such as Highland Village, transportation, the environment, housing, urban design, parks, recreation, the library and public safety. The major points from the first survey have been listed on this second survey and now it’s time for the people of Highland Park to identify which changes they want the most.

You may complete this survey on paper and mail directly to our offices.  Download survey here.

The Highland District Council’s goal in updating the existing District 15 plan is to make sure the plan fits with the City’s Comprehensive plan, reflects the aspirations and visions of our neighborhood and helps frame the objectives and strategies to guide future growth and development in the Highland Park neighborhood.

The Planning Commission has initiated the process to update the District 15 plan, in response to a formal request from the Highland District Council. The intent is to update the District 15 plan to include neighborhood input and reflect changes throughout the neighborhood and city since the last District 15 plan was approved.
