West St. Paul City Council Preview: April 11, 2022

Thanks to West St. Paul Chiropractic and Cardinal Corner for their support.

Monday’s West St. Paul City Council meeting includes a public hearing on the Annapolis reconstruction project, plus a hint at potential movement on the Doddway project.

What’s on the Agenda?

  • Annapolis: The Annapolis reconstruction project will again come before City Council during the Open Council Work Session (OCWS) with some potential hiccups with the proposed options, as well as an option for adding a “parking bay” near El Cubano. There will also be a public hearing during the regular meeting to approve the project.
  • Doddway: It’s been quiet since the proposed Doddway redevelopment project was proposed last summer, though tucked into the consent agenda is a request for federal funding for Smith/Dodd street realignment, a plaza at Albert Park, and a memorial for Officer Scott Patrick. It’s just initial Council support on funding that would have to be approved at multiple levels, but it’s confirmation that the project is still in the works.
  • Ice arena: Council will award bids, contracts, and approve a funding agreement for the ice arena expansion.
  • Loading docks: Council will consider a final approval of an amendment that tweaks where loading docks can be located in industrial zones.
  • Strategic plan: Council will again review their initiatives from last month’s strategic planning meeting.
  • Budget: OCWS will also include some budget parameters and priorities for the 2023 and 2024 budgets.

The public can watch the meeting live on Town Square TV or cable TV starting at 6:30 p.m. on Monday (5:30 p.m. for the OCWS).
