Concord Street Improvements
The City of South St. Paul, in cooperation with MnDOT and Dakota County, is investing in improvements to Concord Street between I-494 and Annapolis Street that will provide better multi-modal connectivity, increase traffic safety and efficiency, and replace infrastructure that has been reached the end of its useful life. The project will revitalize the Concord Street corridor to support economic growth, commerce, and redevelopment.
In 2020, Staff received a grant from Dakota County to fund a zoning study to update the North Concord Mixed Use Zoning District. The City has been planning a zoning study for this district since at least 2013. The North Concord Mixed Use district has been listed as an area primed for a zoning study for several years now in the City's Capital Improvements Plan. The goal of the study is to update the North Concord Mixed-Use zoning district standards to better align with the community redevelopment goals and market realities. The study will help the corridor prepare for redevelopment after the Concord Street reconstruction project is completed in 2022.
Concord Exchange Streetscape (2021-2023)
