The City of Maplewood is proposing the creation of the the North End (NE) Zoning District to guide future development and redevelopment in the area around the Maplewood Mall and St. John’s Hospital. This area was identified in the 2040 Comprehensive Plan as an opportunity site where a mix of uses and pedestrian-oriented development would support and benefit from the availability of transit, including the future Rush Line Bus Rapid Transit (BRT).
In 2019 the City adopted the North End Vision Plan. This plan set the parameters and design principles for the area, including exploring the potential for future phasing and full redevelopment. The North End Zoning District Project has taken the guidance of the 2040 Comprehensive Plan and the North End Vision Plan and established a new zoning district to achieve the community’s vision.
North End Vision Plan - Adopted on September 9, 2019
The North End Vision Plan is a shared community vision that addresses short- and long-term opportunities for change in Maplewood’s North End neighborhood. The Vision Plan is not prescriptive and, therefore, should not be used to determine the exact placement or design of new buildings and infrastructure. Instead, as a vision plan, it is intended to be a guide for how the public and private sectors can make future investments in the North End that are sustainable and resilient while at the same time meet the needs of the community.
