None of these will help revitalize downtown Saint Paul at all. Not even a little bit.

What in the world are we talking about? Revitalize? Its kind of like the wasted money stamping poems in sidewalks. In my district, they vote for the best tree for all species of trees. And I think the district funded a get together under the winning trees to read "tree poetry". This is all to revitalize St. Paul. Liberals....

Want to revitalize downtown Saint Paul, create a retail strip such as one finds on Hennepin in Uptown or in Stillwater or downtown Duluth and let small business come in and do it's thing. Done. Right now businesses are fleeing for their lives, just as they have been for decades. Downtown Saint Paul needs a strip, a district where people would actually want to go and shop and have coffee etc.. Right now all you can do in downtown STP is worry about being mugged or beat down or watch tumbleweeds roll down the empty streets. Get a strip STP!

@littleboots - I don't know where you live or when the last time was you visited St. Paul but There is safe, clean, vibrant district of restaurants and shops in St. Paul called Lowertown. Stereotypes may be hard to break but if you venture out in Lowertown any night of the week or on a Saturday morning you'll see lots of happy people eating at the restaurants and bars, taking in music in Mears, or shopping at the farmer's market. As far as the comments about liberal politicians - the competition this article refers to is supported by private foundations and doesn't involve any politicians so your arguments don't really work!
