Chart of the Day: Zoning Decisions in Saint Paul over Time

I’m  member of the Saint Paul Planning Commission,and I thought I’d share a chart from the upcoming annual report, showing the number of zoning cases over time separated out by type. I don’t know if it’s interesting or not.

    Minneapolis CPED produces annual Planning Commission reports that are really thorough. A good read for anyone who is interested in planning/zoning/development:

    Bill, is there a post or article where I can get a good education on what St. Paul zoning currently looks like and what it should look like?
    I also don’t understand if zoning changes by an individual building owner’s desire or by neighborhood consensus (community council changes everything).
