Description

Attributes (Fields) Defined

Site Name: A name for the site. Each parcel is part of a site. Sites are an assemblage of one or more parcels that generally share geographic proximity and are marketed together as a unit. Many sites are just one parcel, but when they are more than one parcel, the parcel name (above) reflects this. Parcels within a site will share the same basic name, but be differentiated by a "#1", "#2", "#3", etc. appended to the end of the parcel name. The site name is the parcel name without the numbering at the end. In this way, in ArcGIS, a dissolve on the site name field can be run to produce an analysis by site, instead of by parcel.

Alternate Site Names: Names that have been commonly used for the site, beyond the name specified in the "Site Name" field.
Address: An address for a site shared by all parcels that comprise a site. This is derived from one of the parcel addresses for parcels that comprise the site, or from the addresses assigned by Public Works within a parcel, as can be seen in AMANDA or the PED Staff Map.  If all parcel addresses have a street number of "0" because they are vacant, this field is to include a rough description of where the site is located in the city.

Address: Address used to describe the site.  This is derived from one of the parcel addresses for parcels that comprise the site. 

Alternate Site Addresses: Additional addresses used to describe the site.  This is derived from one of the parcel addresses for parcels that comprise the site. 

Ward: The Ward in which the site is located. This field is updated every ten years to reflect changes to Ward boundaries due to redistricting. CHOICES: 1 • 2 • 3 • 4 • 5 • 6 • 7

Planning District: The number of the Planning District in which the Site is located. The City is divided into seventeen planning districts, each served by a city-funded and city-recognized District Council. CHOICES: 1 • 2 • 3 • 4 • 5 • 6 • 7 • 8 • 9 • 10 • 11 • 12 • 13 • 14 • 15 • 16 • 17

General Description: A general description of the site, its history, current circumstances, and anything else of a summary nature that would not easily fit in other fields.

Classification: This is the core means of classifying HRA-owned properties, the way the sites are marketed or not marketed, and the HRA's intended destiny for the parcels. CHOICES: 
  • Commercial - Pending Sale: Properties that are generally zoned to allow a range of commercial uses, and currently have an active offer, option, or tentative developer status.
  • Commercial - Sold: Properties that were generally zoned to allow a range of commercial uses when last owned by the HRA, were previously owned by the HRA but that have been sold, and where the HRA retains no ownership interest.
  • Commercial - Vacant Land: Properties that are generally zoned to allow a range of commerical uses, and have no known building or other structure.
  • Commercial - with Building(s): Properties that are generally zoned to allow a range of commercial uses, and contain a building or other structure.
  • Long-Term Hold: Properties that, per contractual obligations, or for other reasons, are expected to be held by the City of Saint Paul for many years, and not generally available for purchase.
  • Long-Term Hold - Parking: Properties that are expected to be held by the City of Saint Paul for many years as parking facilities, and are not generally available for purchase
  • Residential - Pending Sale: Properties that are generally zoned to allow mainly residential uses, and currently have an active offer, option, or tentative developer status.
  • Residential - Sold: Properties that were generally zoned to allow mainly residential uses when last owned by the HRA, that were previously owned by the HRA but that have been sold, and where the HRA retains no ownership interest.
  • Residential - Vacant Land: Properties that are generally zoned to allow mainly residential uses, and have no known building or other structure.
  • Residential - With Building(s): Properties that are generally zoned to allow mainly residential uses, and contain a building or other structure.
  • Transfer to Other Ownership: Properties that are intended for conveyance to other ownership, such as parkland that is ultimately intended to be conveyed to the Department of Parks & Recreation, or right-of-way that most appropriately would be held by the Department of Public Works.
Characteristics - Estimated Market Value - Tax Year: The year for which the estimated market values (EMVs) shown in subsequent fields is used to calculate the site's total tax liability.

Characteristics - Estimated Market Value - EMV Year: The year to which the estimated market values (EMVs) shown in subsequent fields applied as a representation of the site's value.

Characteristics - Estimated Market Value - Land: The estimated market value (EMV) of the site's land, as determined by the Ramsey County Assessor's office, and derived from the Ramsey County Parcel Service. The Site EMV Land is obtained by adding together the individual EMV Land values for each parcel within the site. This is updated at least once per year in order to stay reasonably current with any data updates.

Characteristics - Estimated Market Value - Building: The estimated market value (EMV) of the site's built structure(s), as determined by the Ramsey County Assessor's office, and derived from the Ramsey County Parcel Service. The Site EMV Building is obtained by adding together the individual EMV Building values for each parcel within the site. This is updated at least once per year in order to stay reasonably current with any data updates.

Characteristics - Estimated Market Value - Total: The estimated market value (EMV) of the site's land and built structure(s), added together, as determined by the Ramsey County Assessor's office and derived from the Ramsey County Parcel Service. The Site EMV Total is obtained by adding together the individual EMV Total values for each parcel within the site. This is updated at least once per year in order to stay reasonably current with any data updates.

Characteristics - Dimensions - Acres: The acreage of the site, as derived from the parcel geometry in GIS.

Characteristics - Existing Buildings - Total Square Feet: The total square footage of the existing building(s) on the site.

Characteristics - Zoning: The code(s) for the the zoning designation(s) assigned across all parcels in this site, derived directly from the Principal Zoning GIS layer, and updated at least annually. 

Characteristics - Historic Status: A description of the relevant historic regulatory context applicable to the site.  This includes mention of all historic districts and sites applicable to the site or areas adjacent to the site, as well as any additional context study or survey applicable to the site and future decisions about development.

Marketing - Status: A description of the status staff have put on the marketing for this site. CHOICES:
  • 0 - Long-Term Hold: this is a site the HRA would like to hold onto for the long-term, because of long-term lease agreements or other similar factors.
  • 1 - Designated for transfer to specific owner: this is a site the HRA believes is best suited for conveyance to a particular owner, for example the Department of Parks & Recreation or a townhome association that owns adjacent land.
  • 2 - Future marketing - low priority: this site needs further research before it can be marketed for sale, and is a low-level priority for marketing.
  • 3 - Future marketing - medium priority: this site needs further research before it can be marketed for sale, and is a medium-level priority for marketing.
  • 4 - Future marketing - high priority: this site needs further research before it can be marketed for sale, and is a high-level priority for marketing.
  • 5 - Available on the open market, subject to disposition policy: this site is available for sale to anyone interested, subject to the terms of the HRA's disposition policy.
  • 6 - Under review/pending sale: this site is not available for sale because there is an offer or agreement established or being actively negotiated with interested parties.

Time Period of Content Date
This data is current as of the day published, except as noted above in field descriptions.


Currentness Reference
Time Period of Content date indicates the date which the user can be confident of accuracy and completeness of the data.


Maintenance and Update Frequency
This data is updated continuously to reflect property acquisitions, sales and changed conditions.


Coordinate System
This data is projected in a custom local coordinate system known as "NAD_1983_86_Adj_MN_Ramsey_Feet". As an early adopter of GIS, many local governments in Minnesota developed their own coordinate systems. As a legacy, users of this data need a custom coordinate transformation in order to change the data to a commonly-available coordinate system. Users may download custom coordinate transformations for use in ArcMap. One of the transformations will convert this data to NAD 1983 UTM Zone 15N, the dominant common coordinate system in the Minneapolis Saint Paul metro. Users of other GIS mapping systems may contact us as described elsewhere on this page in order to obtain data converted to a commonly-available coordinate system.
