2013–2014 Partner: North St. Paul

RCP's community partner for the 2013-2014 academic year was the City of North St Paul, Minnesota. As a fully developed first-ring suburb, North St. Paul has a rich history and small-town atmosphere, reflected in the spirit of its residents and the livelihood of community events. In recent decades, however, the city has faced a number of challenges, including a declining tax base, aging housing and infrastructure, ongoing competition for commercial and retail development, and lack of accessibility due to the recently completed Highway 36 reconstruction project. These challenges also present opportunities for the community to reenergize its residents and forge ahead toward a more sustainable and resilient community that both honors its past and anticipates its future.

RCP partnered with North St. Paul on 16 projects that engaged hundreds of students in dozens of courses from across the University of Minnesota. You can view a brief summary of the partnership and projects, or learn more about individual projects by visiting the North St. Paul Projects page.
