The Saint Paul Downtown Alliance is piloting a Stewardship Program this summer, as part of its research into a potential business improvement district in downtown Saint Paul. The Stewardship Program will deploy full-time staff around Central Station, Rice Park, Landmark Plaza and Hamm Plaza to keep these vibrant areas welcoming, clean and safe. The program will also fund community activities, art projects and social activations in the same areas, providing a multiplier effect for all the efforts and investments aimed at building a vibrant downtown. The Stewardship Program received funding from the Knight Foundation, John and Ruth Huss, and Dr. Lowell Hellervik.
