After squeezing through with 9-8 vote, matter now in the hands of city council
Despite some neighborhood opposition, People Incorporated is closing in on its zoning wishes, and is a step closer to approval for relocating its short-term mental health crisis center to a former convent at White Bear and Lacrosse avenues.
Currently located in the Hamline-Midway neighborhood, the short-term mental health crisis center would like to move to the East Side where it would increase its capacity to provide temporary housing for up to 16 men and women experiencing mental health crises.

Ride to start and end at Neumann’s
From his post at Neumann’s, longtime bartender Frank Kohler has forged camaraderie with a number of locals and city employees -- including the late North St. Paul Police Officer Richard Crittenden.
Kohler says Crittenden was very strict, but also knew how to joke around and have fun.
“I used to have spiky hair,” Kohler says, setting up a story about the time Crittenden ran up to him, asking if he was scared.
“He had a laugh like a tickled bear -- this belly laugh,” Kohler recalls.
