The Planning and Economic Development Department (PED) administers a variety of planning, housing, business and economic development activities. These activities support a number of neighborhood initiatives and also provide direct benefits to home owners, home buyers, renters and businesses. Working in partnership with community and neighborhood partners, we increase investment and values throughout Saint Paul. It is our goal to ensure Saint Paul is the most livable city in America.
