Downtown Design Manual

About the Manual

The Downtown Design Manual (PDF) was developed under the guidance and direction of the Design and Historical Review Commission and was adopted by Council in 2005. The manual illustrates portions of the North St. Paul Code of Ordinance to clearly depict the desired built environment within the North St. Paul Downtown District.

The manual was developed to communicate, facilitate, educate, guide, and inform the reader about the design review process and regulations contained within the North St. Paul Code of Ordinance.

A visual component that depicts and encourages design standards for the City’s downtown district for the purpose of enhancing the image and character of downtown.
