Where we’ve come from

In 1992, the city of Saint Paul designated the area surrounding the intersection of Raymond and University Avenues as the first Neighborhood Cultural District outside of downtown.

Since then, much has changed. The Creative Enterprise Zone grew out of an initiative by the St. Anthony Park Community Council to ensure that the area's creative nature remains intact.
