Everything with a Strategy
Minnesota's capital city is home to a 21st century global community where we engage in ensuring all of us experience Saint Paul as a place of belonging for people to live, work, play, and thrive. We are a community that has stepped up time and time again amid the many challenges we've faced to ensure our city remains safe, welcoming, and inclusive. Just as our community has engaged in finding new ways to care for one another, we have continued to double down on our investments in Saint Paul's families, Saint Paul's workers, and Saint Paul's entrepreneurs to ensure that no one is left behind. As we continue moving forward together, we invite everyone to join us in our safe, welcoming and inclusive city.
As a community where over 100 languages are spoken in our schools, our cultural destination areas reflect the rich diversity of our community. Residents and visitors alike can experience the dazzling lights, sights, and sounds of Mekong and the endless flavors of University Avenue. Frogtown and Rondo offer spaces of reflection like the Rondo Commemorative Plaza, an afternoon of food and music at Rondo Days or the Selby Avenue Jazz Fest, and a warm conversation at Golden Thyme Coffee or Heritage Tea House.
As a community, we share a commitment to making sure the work we do at the local level reflects our shared values to address the needs we all have today, while building for our future. We invite everyone to join us in this work, because our community knows we all do better when we all do better.
