WHEREAS, pursuant to Sec. 61.801(b) of the Saint Paul Zoning Code, the Saint Paul City Council, with Resolution 17-1713, on October 18, 2017, initiated the West Marshall Avenue
Zoning Study for property along Marshall Avenue from the Mississippi River to Hamline Avenue; and

WHEREAS, the study area includes all parcels with frontage along Marshall Avenue and those parcels added to the study area by the Planning Commission in its Resolutions 18-35 and 18-62 for a total study area in excess of 40 acres; and

WHEREAS, given the number of real estate descriptions that could be affected by amendment or alteration of the zoning ordinance, the Planning Commission determined that obtaining written consent from property owners would be impractical; and

WHEREAS, on August 10, 2018, following a duly noticed public hearing that was held on June 29, 2018, the Planning Commission recommended the rezoning of a number of parcels in the study area in accordance with and related to the West Marshall Avenue Zoning Study and to the overall needs of the community as documented in the study dated July 25, 2018; and

WHEREAS, on September 19, 2018, following a duly noticed public hearing before the City Council where all interested parties were afforded the opportunity to be heard, the Council considered all the facts, recommendations, and testimony regarding the proposed zoning amendments, pursuant to the authority granted by and in accordance with the procedures set forth in Minnesota Statutes § 462.357



That the Zoning Map of Saint Paul, incorporated in Legislative Code § 60.303, is hereby amended as follows:

Preserving opportunities for transit oriented growth along the vital 21/53 bus route is a must do thing for St Paul. We recently received news that the world will see deadly and irreversible climate change in a decade. The least we can do for those who would like to live longer than 12 more years is to better promote places where it’s easy to be car free to live, work and play. +3 -2
