A positive, local response

to climate change

Neighbors addressing climate change

Transition Town — All St. Anthony Park

Smaller Footprint, Stronger Community

We’re neighbors linking up to live responsibly on the Earth.  Our ideas are as many as the challenges we all face. But they may not yet include yours. Come, think, work, and celebrate with us!  

Our purpose is to raise our neighborhood's understanding of climate change and the limits of fossil fuels, and to foster a positive, community-wide transition to more sustainable ways of life... ASAP.  ASAP reminds us that climate calls for our best efforts, right now. All Saint Anthony Park means South and North; renters and homeowners; newcomers and long-timers; businesses and nonprofits, youth, students, and seniors; faith groups, people of all ethnicities... all are needed. (See a map of our area of St. Paul, Minnesota.)

Neighborhood walk:
Reconsidering I-94

Tuesday, September 26, 6:00 pm sharp

Meet on patio at Lake Monster Brewing

550 Vandalia Street, St. Paul

Take a walk on the gritty side! What's the future of the 7-mile stretch of I-94 between the two downtowns? Hosted by two district councils, we're taking a ground-level look at the effects of I-94 on the St. Anthony Park and Union Park neighborhoods. MnDOT has drafted some high-level options for "rethinking" the aging highway. See those options in its current public survey, or better yet, join the walk, then respond to the survey.


Public support is growing for the two redesign options that would infill that highway trench, knit neighborhoods back together, free up land for community use, and add routes for public transit and local traffic. These "at-grade" designs most resemble the Twin Cities Boulevard concept endorsed by the SAP Community Council and Transition Town – ASAP.


Meet at 6:00 sharp. The full walk is 3 miles (back by 8:00), but there's a 1.5-mile option as well, both ending back at Lake Monster. Wear sturdy shoes. Details in the Park Bugle ("Walk around I-94") and on the SAPCC Facebook event page.  RSVP optional.
