We have received 60+ applications for the Housing Workgroup at The Heights. We are currently reviewing each application and will will be selecting committee members the week of May 9. This information will be posted online.
Scope of Work
The Heights Housing Workgroup will collaborate with the Saint Paul Port Authority, ultimately influencing decisions that are in alignment with City of Saint Paul’s Master Plan. The group will discuss a wide range of topics, including affordability levels, ownership/rental balance, unit mix, and promoting neighborhood pride.
Work Group Structure
The committee will consist of 6-10 members, including Greater Eastside residents and subject matter experts.
Committee members will share their ideas and opinions. They will also come prepared to each meeting by reading materials provided. Ideal candidates will have a connection to the neighborhood and a passion for housing.
Meetings will be held in person to maximize collaboration. Meeting dates and times will depend on committee members’ availability. We anticipate hosting five meetings between June and September 2022. Transportation, translation services, and childcare can be provided if needed.
Workgroup members will receive $50 for each meeting attended. An additional $25 may be provided for completing assigned homework. Payments will be provided in the form of Visa gift cards, thanks to a grant provided by the Eastside Funders Group.
