Bold. Inclusive. Driven.

One of our main initiatives at the Saint Paul Downtown Alliance is encouraging and tracking our city’s ongoing economic development. After all, the stronger our local economy is, the better!

We believe that investing in Saint Paul planning and economic development helps cultivate a space for all of us to grow and thrive. And by celebrating our history and laying the groundwork for our future, we preserve shared connections while creating opportunities for all.
