Lowertown Ballpark Update: Bidding for the Ballpark accepted! Ballpark Design meeting thus Postponed?
Will this bidding process: http://www.twincities.com/stpaul/ci_21792292/st-paul-put-design-saints-ballpark-out-bid, which begins November 30th, be limited to the actual construction of the ballpark project, or include conceptual ballpark facility designs?

Here is our newest video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1-BGEfMy4I&feature=youtu.be. Christin and Bill discuss this bidding process and why the first 'Lowertown Ballpark Design and Construction Committee' meeting, October 18th, was subsequently postponed. Will this group be expected to pre-approve the city's plans being the July 2012 City Council resolution states it will have "... a focus on ensuring that a livable and economically viable neighborhood is maintained throughout the construction process and after the ballpark is open" or will they actually have a say in its 'design' and be allowed to seek community input as well?
