Rice Street - Larpenteur Avenue Gateway Area Vision Plan

Planning Process

The cities of Maplewood, Roseville, and St. Paul are beginning a visioning plan for the Rice Street-Larpenteur Avenue Gateway Corridor.  Throughout 2017 the cities will be cooperatively developing a vision for the short- and long-term future of the area.  The purpose of the project is to understand and respond to barriers, challenges, benefits, and opportunities associated with changes in land use, access, transit services, and other facilities around key nodes in the corridor; and identify potential redevelopment sites throughout the study area.
