Creating or Revising Neighborhood Plans 
District Councils or key community organizations lead the process for creating or revising District and Small Area Plans, in coordination with City staff and the Planning Commission.  The purpose of and process for plan creation is described in the document District and Small Area Plan Guidelines.  Beginning in 2011, the general content and format of these plans, which are adopted as addenda to the Saint Paul Comprehensive Plan, should follow this generic neighborhood plan template.  A list of Saint Paul Comprehensive Plan strategies for neighborhood consideration may help in community planning discussions.

A helpful 'how to' guide for neighborhood planning, "Road to the Community Plan", explains and illustrates key steps to guide communities as they undertake a community plan process.  The road map was created by CURA student researcher Andrew Tran in partnership with the Macalester-Groveland Community Council and City of Saint Paul.

Types of Neighborhood Plans
As detailed in the chart above, neighborhood plans break down into several types:
  • District Plans are the official plans of the 17 planning districts in the City of Saint Paul.
  • Small Area Plans (SAPs) are focused redevelopment strategies centered on a specific geographic area. PED staff prepare the plan with the cooperation of district councils, local business associations, neighborhood residents, other City staff and appropriate stakeholders. A summary of the SAP is written by PED staff, recommended by the Planning Commission and adopted by the City Council as part of the Comprehensive Plan. Development plans are the same as small area plans. SAPs should be retired after ten years unless a specific time frame is indicated. Older small area plans do not have summaries and were adopted in whole as part of the City’s Comprehensive Plan.
  • Precinct Plans are small area plans within the four-square miles covered by the Saint Paul on the Mississippi Development Framework (Capitol to District Del Sol, High Bridge to Lafayette Bridge). Please note that the North Quadrant Precinct Plan is not an addendum to the Saint Paul Comprehensive Plan.
  • Development Strategies are adopted by the City Council as part of the Comprehensive Plan, and guide public and private investment within an identified sub-neighborhood or corridor.
  • City Council Approved Plans are approved by the City Council, but not adopted as part of the official Comprehensive Plan.  This means that they hold some sway as City policy, but do not have as much legal significance as the Comprehensive Plan does.
  • Other Plans are plans which are not officially adopted by the City Council and are not part of the official Comprehensive Plan.  However, these planning documents may be used as decision-making tools and to inform other plans and policies.
