Saint Paul Public Hearing on Hillcrest Development Plan

The Hillcrest Master Plan will determine future land uses and a new street network for the 112-acre former golf course on Saint Paul’s East Side at the southwest corner of Larpenteur Avenue and McKnight Road. The development will include a mixture of approximately 1,000 light industrial jobs and 1,000 housing units.

As with any new development, there are opportunities to build a world–and city–we see needed for our future. With the mixture of light industry and residential, there will be around 3,000 people navigating four main streets connecting to Larpenteur Avenue and McKnight Road.

Saint Paul residents are encouraged to attend the hearing this Friday, March 4, or submit comments by Monday, March 7, and learn more about this development.

The development needs to realistically show how people will safely walk these new streets shared by large trucks and access public transit on Larpenteur Avenue and McKnight Road. 

The Saint Paul Planning Commission will hold a public hearing at 8:30 AM on Friday, March 4 regarding the:

  1. Draft Hillcrest Master Plan
  2. Hillcrest Rezoning Study (proposed rezoning)
  3. Hillcrest Zoning Code Study (zoning code amendments)
  4. Comprehensive Plan amendment

Background information can be found in the master plan document as well as the memo to the Planning Commission.

Oral testimony can be given during the Planning Commission meeting via telephone or Microsoft Teams meeting:
