Invest Saint Paul: Community Days

As part of Mayor Chris Coleman’s Invest Saint Paul initiative, Community Days events have been happening all across Saint Paul neighborhoods.

The aim of Community Days is to bring fun, family friendly events to residents, as well as information about resources and opportunities available to them in Saint Paul.  Activities include free prizes, Parks and Rec Mobile Team with games and arts and crafts for kids, Saint Paul Public Libraries’ Bookmobile, a fire truck, ambulance, and police officers and fire fighters for residents to meet.

“These events provide an opportunity for us to engage with residents and educate them about what the city has to offer and how residents can work with our departments to benefit themselves and their neighborhoods,” Mayor Coleman said. “By bringing ‘the city’ out to the residents, we are removing the transportation barrier to accessing resources. Working to ensure all neighborhoods thrive is crucial to achieving our goal of making Saint Paul the Most Livable City in America.”

Representatives from each city department will have booths set up, at which residents can learn about the resources each St. Paul department provide and how to access them.  Invest Saint Paul Community Days also hosts representatives from Ramsey County, non-profits, and local neighborhood organizations that offer resources and engagement opportunities to residents.  Information on licensing and code requirements, fire prevention and safety, foreclosure prevention, business development services, city loan funds, and more will also be provided.

Community Days events are open to everyone and all are encouraged to attend. The next events will be on Wednesday, September 10, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Fire Station 4, 505 Payne Avenue East.

One of the main goals of the Invest Saint Paul initiative is to engage the community in meaningful dialogue and encourage active participation.  Ultimately, individual involvement within the community will increase the capacity of the city and other neighborhood organizations to collaborate on solving challenges within St. Paul.  Invest Saint Paul Community Days are one way the city can ensure that all residents are informed and equipped to benefit from the variety of resources available to them.
