St. Paul Downtown Community Forum

About

Welcome to the St. Paul Downtown Community Forum.

The neighborly place to share information, discuss local issues, find solutions and build a vibrant community. This forum is open to downtown residents (including Lowertown), business owners, and all people passionate about downtown St. Paul.

Join now.  This forum will open for introductions at 100 members. 

While an independent forum, it is a friendly complement to the important work of the District 17 Capitol River Council. Also check out the complementary Lowertown Landing Facebook Page.

Participate via e-mail or the web. Stay tuned for future Facebook and Twitter options.
