North St. Paul now marketing ‘new’ single-family home near Webster School 

The transformation of a duplex into a single-family home located across the street from Webster Elementary School in North, St. Paul, is nothing short of amazing, and it is even more amazing that all the renovation work was done by high school students. 

After a prior resident had to be evacuated using teargas and arrested for criminal acts in 2013, the duplex at 2001 Sixth Street, North St. Paul, was boarded up and fell into foreclosure. The dwelling soon became a blight that the neighborhood was eager to change.

County Road 13 renovations will affect Oakdale/Lake Elmo residents
Olson Lake Trail/Ideal Avenue is in rough shape and needs attention. That’s the assessment of Washington County traffic engineers, who say patching the busy thoroughfare, also known as County State Aid Highway 13, is no longer cost-effective.  
They’ve drawn up several options that they believe would address city, county and residents’ concerns. The plans call for resurfacing and possibly reconstructing about 1.7 miles of the road bordering Oakdale and Lake Elmo.
