St. Paul Planners reject single-family homes

Updated: Mar 9, 2019

The St. Paul Planning Commission on Friday rejected Ryan Cos.’ plan to build 35 single-family homes as part of the massive redevelopment of the former Ford plant.

While the commission approved most of Ryan’s other proposed changes to the plan, the single-family homes along Mississippi River Boulevard had proved one of the most popular features of the 122-acre redevelopment, judging by reaction at the Jan. 25 public hearing.

The final decision lies with the City Council, and a Ryan representative said Friday it plans to seek approval for the single-family homes there.
