Next steps for the Provincial House family shelter

Project Home at the Provincial House

Yesterday, the City of Saint Paul’s Zoning Committee unanimously passed an application from Interfaith Action of Greater Saint Paul for a conditional use permit to use the Provincial House as a family shelter.

The Zoning Committee’s recommendation will now go to the Planning Commission for a vote on Friday, March 5. The agenda for this meeting will be posted on the City’s website next week.
