Nancy Homans, St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman’s policy director, said that public parks alone won’t turn the corridor green. She pointed out that Hamline Station, a nonprofit affordable housing development on the Green Line that started construction this week, will include a public plaza.

Parks are “not going to be a hard sell for big development sites,” such as the proposed Snelling-University neighborhood marketplace and the Sears site near downtown, Homans said. “The harder ones will be the tiny lot redevelopment.”
