CEPRO Neighborhood Greenspace Celebration and Planning

By Sunny Sevigny

Wednesday, May 13, members of the community enjoyed a Neighborhood Greenspace Celebration as part of the St. Paul Riverfront Corporation’s annual Placemaking Residency. The event took place on the site of the former CEPRO grain elevators between 10th and 11th avenues. The event centered around engaging community members in discussions about what has already been done on the site in the past, and identifying some ideas and next steps needed to continue its development. There was a community workshop led by a representative from Gehl Studios from San Francisco, a talk on building healthy communities by Dr. Richard Jackson, as well as live music, a mobile sign shop, Zumba, and an aerialist performance. Many members of the community came out to participate in the workshop, or brought their children to enjoy the day in the open greenspace, make some art, and listen to live music from local artists.
