District 10 Land Use Committee Work Plan 

Goals and Activities for 2009 

The District 10 Land Use Committee has adopted the following 3 goals for 2009 and identified 

the following 4 objectives for the year, along with a number of specific activities that it believes 

will support these goals.  This work plan expresses the Committee’s commitment to the adopted 

goals, but the Committee may substitute other activities if the changes are judged to promote the 

Committee’s goals and objectives or if the activities are no longer deemed be appropriate. 

Goal 1: Educate the public about land use issues that affect District 10 residents. 

Goal 2: Provide a forum for District 10 residents to express their voice on land use decisions that 

impact them. 

Goal 3: Conserve and strengthen District 10 neighborhoods so that their stability, safety, 

property values, tax base, and attractiveness remain the showcase of Saint Paul. 

Objective 1:  Develop feasible reuse and/or redevelopment options for the Sholom Home site 

that enhance and support the Midway Parkway neighborhood and District 10. 

  

Objective 2:  Recommend to the Saint Paul Planning Commission changes, amendments, and 

updates to the Midway Parkway-West Como Small Area Plan so as to conserve and strengthen 

the Midway Parkway-West Como neighborhood, thereby enhancing its stability, safety, property 

values, tax base, and attractiveness as the Showcase of Saint Paul.  

  

Objective 3:  Recommend alternatives for the future development of the Lexington/Larpenteur 

area that reflect community values, enhance the economic vitality of the area, and serve as a 

“gateway” to the community as envisioned in the District 10 Land Use Plan. 

  

Objective 4:  Influence plans for redeveloping the Como Pool so that it will be an asset to the 

community while also avoiding negative impacts on traffic and the environment.
