Once again, the City of St. Paul has come in first in the nation for cities its size! It is a winner in terms of the number and quality of the National Night Out celebrations. These events are held the first Tuesday in August every year and are a way to get to know your neighbors, have fun, and reduce the amount of crime in an area.
This year, District 1 had 11 block parties, including a community-wide event (see this blog for last August!).
Congratulations to all the neighbors who contributed to this award AND to making our communities safer!

On Tuesday December 8 at 5:30p, the District Council's Land Use committee will be meeting at the Conway Rec Center to discuss a proposal of a Nonconforming Use Permit to be issued for 770 Brookline St. in the Highwood neighborhood and the River Corridor.
This business is a excavation business that has multiple large machines stored on the property, just south of the Highwood Preserve and off of Springside Avenue. The permit is required because this type of business is not legally permitted in a residential area along the bluffs in the River Corridor.
The Committee will be taking comments at the meeting and then presenting its opinion at a meeting on Thursday, December 10 at 3:30p in City Hall Chambers before the city's zoning committee.
Residents are welcome to come to our committee meeting to give comments and also to attend or send their comments to the Zoning Committee. If you cannot attend either meeting, send comments to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or to Sarah.Zorn@ci.stpaul.mn.us.
