Ramsey County, in partnership with the City of Saint Paul, is proposing to reconstruct White Bear Ave. between I‐94 and Beech Street beginning in 2016. The purpose of the project is to reconstruct pavement structure, reconstruct aging utilities and reduce congestion and accidents.

A public meeting will be held May 28 at 6 p.m. at Grace Lutheran Church, located at 1730 Old Hudson Road, to present the proposed roadway layout, identify public concerns and receive input. There will be a presentation starting at 6 p.m. followed by questions and comments.

Mental Health Awareness Month

May is National Mental Health Awareness Month

Nearly 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. have a form of mental illness, and 11 percent of adolescents have a depressive disorder by age 18. Ramsey County Community Human Services provides a range of programs to help county residents address mental health concerns: Adult Mental Health Services and Children’s Mental Health Services.

The stigma surrounding mental health is often a barrier to seeking help. Community Human Services and Saint Paul – Ramsey County Public Health recommend the Make It OK Campaign as a resource for the community to talk openly about mental illness.
