Paul Neighborhood Honor Roll
Joan Ballanger 2017 Neighbor of the Year
will be honored at the 2017 Neighborhood Honor Roll Event
at the University of St Thomas on January 23, 2018.
Joan has supported the district council since the early 2000s.
While taking her daily walks, she often chats with residents
asking what areas need improvements or where concerns are
and then brings their concerns to the attention of the board.
For example, Joan worked hard to collaborate with others to
get the crosswalk installed at Furness and Larpenteur.
She has also contacted the city to ensure the broken and sunken
sidewalks on her block were replaced.
For more information
or to obtain tickets for the event, contact Lisa at the District
2 Office at 651-774-2220.
Golf Course Updates
Course has been a long time part of the District 2 Neighborhood.
With the announcement that the property has been placed for
sale, many residents, businesses and neighborhood organizations
have raised concerns regarding proposals for the use of this
property. Any proposals for the site will have impact
on the neighborhood and we believe by being proactive and
transparent, we can all come to a solution that will benefit
the neighborhood and our residents. Please check back to this
page and we will continue to update it as information becomes
available. District 2 is also compiling a list of residents
emails to update first as information becomes available. If
you would like to be added to the Hillcrest List,
email Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As of today, neither District 2 nor the City of St Paul is
aware of any purchases or proposals for use of this site.
District 2 staff spoke with City staff today and to date they
have not launched a planning or zoning study on the site,
however are planning to do so in the not-so-distant
future. Once the owners decide when they plan to sell,
the process will begin. Because there is no decision on that
timing yet, the process is being delayed. The City will
be in contact with District 2 on any plans for public hearings
and/or engagement opportunities related to the site going
forward as well as any studies they will be conducting and
District 2 will keep this page as well as the Hillcrest
List updated as further information becomes available.
