The City of Saint Paul is working on a Request for Proposals (RFP) for future development on the city-owned "Fox Lots" at 149 and 171 Robert St South on the West Side Flats. An RPF asks interested developers to send their plans of what they would build if the city were to sell them the lots. Currently the City is asking for the suggestions, priorities and general feedback for what the West Side community would like to see built here. City staff will use community feedback to craft the guidelines of the RFP.
