HMC leads and/or supports a wide variety of programs, projects, and initiatives to make the Hamline Midway neighborhood - a more vital, livable, and sustainable urban community.
Allianz Stadium Community Benefits Fund
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.
HMC has convened a work group comprised of residents, city staff, and local business owners to focus efforts on North Snelling Ave (University Avenue to Pierce Butler.) The goals of the work group include:
- Providing support and resources to current businesses (facade improvement, placemaking, and technical assistance)
- Identifying vacant businesses and promoting new business on the corridor
- Highlighting and promoting North Snelling's assets by creating a vision of what North Snelling could be
- Beautification, public safety, and outreach efforts
