The Frogtown discussion got at light rail's effect on the community. But the main topic was how the community wrestles with the large number of vacant houses.
Questions explored included:
What is St. Paul government doing to deal with vacant houses in Frogtown?How can the city interest developers in existing homes, rather than tearing down and building new?
The backdrop for this issue includes the fact that foreclosures are on the upswing again in Minnesota and new developments are happening in Frogtown, ( not all related to the new train line).
Frogtown is the first focus of our segment InSession, a weekly interactive online forum. Click below to read the transcript of the discussion.
