North St. Paul council considers data-driven development

North St. Paul’s leaders are considering a $50,000 proposal to help them track what area residents eat, drink and buy and how they can use that information to attract and support retailers.
The North St. Paul City Council had its first glance at what a national data-gathering company can offer at a workshop Nov. 19. With better information on where residents and people from neighboring cities shop and find services, the city hopes to drive retailers and restaurants to pick the city as a development site. The Economic Development Authority will review the proposal in January.
