Payne-Lake Community Partners (PLCP) is the name of the Pilot Cities Initiative in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. Its focus is two of the Twin Cities’ most historic commercialvand residential corridors: Payne Avenue in St. Paul and Lake Street in Minneapolis. New and established communities are bringing fresh energy and creating exciting opportunities for shared wealth and prosperity in corridor neighborhoods that will be long-term social, economic, and cultural anchors. PLCP’s agenda to connect people and place is to:

  • Invest in the entrepreneurial energy of new immigrants and communities of color;
  • Accelerate the revitalization of two commercial corridors;
  • Expand the corridor markets into surrounding neighborhoods and the regional economy.
