Neighbors near fair banding together


I am part of a group of neighbors near the State Fair. After gun shots were fired on a neighbor’s lawn in 2021 (during a parking dispute), we decided to band together to work towards a safer neighborhood during the fair for residents and visitors. This effort is built on community connection. While we are in communication with law enforcement and other entities, we are focused on prevention vs. response, de-escalation, and neighbors being able to rely on each other and know what the response times and actions will be.
We feel this is a unique situation faced by St Paul neighbors of the fair, particularly those of us living in the parking overlay, and we hope that our efforts will generate positive outcomes. We welcome the opportunity to connect with you and hope that news coverage will increase awareness.
