Community members packed city hall for a public hearing on a proposed mental health center, which West St. Paul City Council voted unanimously to approve. Council also approved the 2023 budget, approved purchasing the Hy-Vee property, and reviewed the new bike and pedestrian plan.
The community will have a chance to speak on the proposed mental health crisis center at the West St. Paul City Council meeting. Other topics include purchasing the Hy-Vee land, the bike and pedestrian plan, and the final 2023 budget and property tax levy.
Discussion at the West St. Paul City Council meeting included the Parks Master Plan and community center study, shopping for a city attorney, and the 2023 budget.
A potential community center, shopping for a city attorney, and the budget will all come up for discussion during the West St. Paul City Council work session, with a public hearing for next year’s road projects and alcohol and tobacco compliance checks during the regular meeting.
We ask the candidates for West St. Paul City Council and mayor about the budget and whether or not they support this year’s property tax increase.
Long-term development took center stage during West St. Paul’s City Council meeting, including the former Hy-Vee/YMCA property with a proposal for apartments, a sit-down restaurant, and public space, Dakota County’s mental health crisis recovery and treatment center, and a feasibility study for a community center.
