St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter 

St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter announced a series of seven community conversations called “Imagine Our City” to be held in February, ahead of the State of Our City Summit in March.

“In 2018, we achieved a big vision we built with residents from across St. Paul,” said Carter. “I am thrilled to continue the conversation with our neighbors and local businesses and invite everyone to join us as we imagine the future of our city together.”     

Residents are encouraged to join these community conversations to offer their perspectives on the opportunities and challenges they face. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn about new city initiatives, including serve St. Paul, an initiative to connect residents to civic volunteering opportunities to serve their community.

There will be free tax preparation and support from local providers to assist residents in determining tax credit eligibility and filing.
