This data delineates the districts set forth inChapter 68 of Saint Paul City Code, focused on the Mississippi River Corridor Critical Area (MRCCA). Chapter 68 also currently contains floodplain standards which are technically still binding, but have been functionally replaced by the standards set forth in Chapter 72,Floodplain Management Overlay Districts. The River Corridor Overlay District and its subclassifications, RC1, RC2, RC3, RC4, are map overlay districts, designed to provide comprehensive floodplain and river bluff management for the city in accordance with the policies of Minnesota Statutes (Chapters 103 and 116G), Minnesota Regulations (MEQC 54) and Governor's Executive Order No. 79-19.The MRCCA is a land corridor along the Mississippi River in the seven-county metro area in which special land use regulations guide development activity. The corridor extends 72 miles along the Mississippi River from the cities of Ramsey and Dayton in the north to the City of Hastings and Ravenna Township in the south. It includes 54,000 acres of land along both sides of the river. The State of Minnesota created the corridor and land use regulations in 1976. Local governments administer the regulations through their local plans and zoning ordinances.The MRCCA is home to a full range of residential neighborhoods and parks, as well as river-related commerce, industry, and transportation. Though the MRCCA has been extensively developed, many intact and remnant natural areas remain, including bluffs, islands, foodplains, wetlands, riparian zones, and native aquatic and terrestrial flora and fauna.New rules regulating the MRCCAwere published on December 27, 2016 and became effective January 4, 2017. Those new rules and these districts will not apply to Saint Paul until Saint Paul updates its zoning code to conform to the new state rules, which has not been initiated as of April 2018, a process which will take many months to complete. This text should be updated at the time the rules are put into effect. A separate layer shows these future overlay districts. But the districts shown in this layer you are currently looking at are the ones which are currently applicable within the Mississippi River Corridor Critical Area in the City of Saint Paul.This data allows mapping of seven districts:RC1River Corridor Floodway Overlay DistrictRC2River Corridor Flood Fringe Overlay DistrictRC3River Corridor Urban Open Overlay DistrictRC4River Corridor Urban Diversified Overlay DistrictAttributes (Fields) Defined:Zoning:The shorthand for the zoning district, generally a combination of two or three letters and numbers.Zoning Name:The name of the zoning district.Zoning Description:A description of the zoning district, written in HTML, intended for use in the popup in ArcGIS Online.Notes:Notes on the zoning designation.
