“The Lakefront Planning Initiative really encourages community participation to stimulate new ideas, which include everything from walking and boating tours, interviews, surveys, special events and even neighborhood captains,” said Patrick Seeb, president and CEO of Saint Paul Riverfront Corporation. “The goal here is to start the conversation so we can incorporate a community vision for the future of the lakefront.”
