We want and need your input! Allianz Field represents an opportunity for our community to maximize new investment for greater equity and growth in our city. In support of this goal, the Saint Paul City Council passed Resolution 16-1407 on August 19, 2016, “Committing to Community Benefits at the Snelling-Midway Redevelopment Site”, which included the creation of a task force to propose a community benefits fund. Per the resolution, the task force created includes representatives from the Union Park District Council, Hamline-Midway Coalition, RK Midway, Minnesota United, the City of Saint Paul and other stakeholders. The task force’s mission is to recommend who will contribute to the fund, how the fund will be governed, and how it will be used to address neighborhood issues arising from the stadium events and operations and future redevelopment at the Snelling-Midway Redevelopment Site, in addition to fostering the ongoing development of new and emerging community leaders.
Date: November 28th
Time: 6:30-7:30 PM
Location: Midpointe Event Center, 415 Pascal St N, St Paul, MN 55104
In order to support the work of our task force, the City of Saint Paul invites you to share your thoughts, ideas and aspirations for the creation of this community benefits fund. Please join us for an initial community conversation to set the vision for this fund.
