West St. Paul City Council Preview: June 13, 2022

We believe in government transparency and provide these West St. Paul City Council previews with your support.

There’s a minimal agenda for West St. Paul City Council on Monday, but the one item is a big one: conceptual plans for the Hy-Vee property.

First Look at Proposals for Hy-Vee Property

After Hy-Vee pulled out of their planned location in West St. Paul, the city has been considering proposals for the property. The Economic Development Authority (EDA) will look at some concept plans for the space that envision a community park/gathering space and housing/retail space. This is early stage “visioning” to imagine what could be in that space.

The city has had several closed meetings to discuss a purchase offer for the Hy-Vee property, but so far nothing has been made public. So these proposals are contingent on some kind of purchase or agreement with Hy-Vee. In other words, this is still very preliminary.

Concept design for the Hy-Vee property.

Other Items on the Agenda

  • Purchase: The EDA will be purchasing 1619 Oakdale Avenue for $375,000. The lot at the corner of Oakdale and Wentworth will be redeveloped.
  • Juneteenth: City Council will recognize the Juneteenth holiday.

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 EDA meeting).
