A discussion about the Hillcrest redevelopment

September 28, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us on Zoom at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 28, as speakers from the City of Saint Paul and the Saint Paul Port Authority share the latest about the Hillcrest golf course redevelopment project.

The Saint Paul Port Authority has a multi-faceted vision for the Hillcrest redevelopment project. They believe Hillcrest will soon represent the largest investment in Saint Paul’s East Side. This project will bring much-needed housing and jobs to the East Side, but not at the expense of health and wellness. Every decision made will be done through the lens of environmental sustainability. In the Port Authority’s quest to create a carbon-free community, with the first LEED for Communities Platinum certification in the world, they will do all they can to ensure natural resources are not depleted in the process. Key features currently being discussed include rooftop solar, geothermal energy, and best-in-class storm management systems.
