St. Paul getting national planning grant for Central Corridor

Linking social services to the Central Corridor is the purpose of a national planning grant that St. Paul has received. More information will be available Thursday, when city leaders talk about how this will help residents and businesses in the Frogtown and Rondo communities.

Advance information says this grant will help “link the social service infrastructure to the physical infrastructure through the planning process. The framework for this interaction is a Human Development Overlay District (HDOD), which will enable human, social, and economic development and public health agencies to provide assistance to residents and businesses so that they can embrace physical changes as opportunities for upward mobility.”

Wow. It might take more than one meeting to understand all that.

Maps, drawings, and charts will be presented at the announcement, along with details of the grant and how it will be used. Here are the details:
WHO: Mayor Chris Coleman; Brian McMahon, project Coordinator, Frogtown
Rondo Partnership; Adam Maleitzke, director of U-PLAN
WHEN: 2:30 p.m. Thursday
WHERE: Greater Frogtown Community Development Corporation, 533 N. Dale St.
