December 9, 2009 The Saint Paul Port Authority closed the purchase of final 11 acre site from 3M. November 3, 2009 Final Recommendations Adopted by Community Advisory Committee Following a November 2008 meeting where approximately 200 East Side stakeholders voiced their concern and interest in the redevelopment of the 3M Main Plant Campus, Council President Kathy Lantry and Councilmember Dan Bostrom convened the 3M Community Advisory Committee in January 2009 to discuss and analyze options for the redevelopment of the 3M Site. The discussions included in-depth analysis of environmental issues, land use, job creation, economic development, historic preservation, building reuse, site circulation, parking and many other issues. Recommendations from a Historic Preservation Workgroup and a Jobs Workgroup, community design workshops, and a number of outside experts also informed the work of the Advisory Committee.
