Chris Tolbert


As the snow melts, and spring feels like it just may be around the corner, I wanted to provide you with an update of some upcoming events in Ward 3.



As always, please reach out to my office if you ever have any questions, or suggestions for our neighborhood. I love hearing from people, and appreciate your insight into our community. I can be reached at Ward3@ci.stpaul.mn.us or (651) 266-8630.

Spring Clean up


Spring Cleanup

The annual Citywide Spring Cleanup is on Saturday, April 25th from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.


This is an opportunity for individuals and groups to gather in your local park to help pick up litter that’s recently exposed due to the melting snow. The Highland Picnic Pavilion is once again a clean up site in our neighborhood and I’d love to have you join me there at this event!


Participation is easy – simply drop in at the Highland Picnic Pavilion, or any of the cleanup sites in the city, and you can pick up bags, gloves, snacks and meet neighbors before helping to pick up the litter at the park.


You can find more information, and a complete list of all the cleanup sites, here:
