We seek a variety of backgrounds and perspectives – transportation expertise is not a requirement. More information on the Saint Paul Transportation Committee can be found here:

It was a full house at the Rondo Community Library as we discussed the Dale Street Bridge Project. So much hard work has been done over the past few years to ensure that this project is shaped by the community.
Ramsey County provided project updates, the City of Saint Paul shared news that they would not be assessing neighbors along Dale for construction related costs, and our team of community artists unveiled their vision to bring beauty and hope to this bridge.
As always, there's more to come and more work to be done, but we are all doing it together!

This dish is basic comfort food. By basic, I mean basic. You may want to take it up a notch by adding frozen peas and carrots in with the chicken. Serve this dish with a tossed green salad.
1 3/4 cups plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
5 to 6 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste
2 1/2 pounds chicken, cut into pieces (or use breast strips)
3/4 cup of sour cream
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Grease a large 9 x 11" baking dish.
Make the Batter...
Combine 1 3/4 cups of the flour, eggs, and milk to create a batter resembling that of a thick pancake batter. Add 1 teaspoon of salt, mix well and pour into the greased baking dish.
Add the Chicken...
Salt and pepper the chicken pieces and arrange throughout the batter in the baking dish. Bake for about 40 to 50 minutes until golden. Remove from heat.
Finish the Dish...
Mix the sour cream with 1 tablespoon of flour and pour/spread it over the chicken dish. Return the baking dish to the oven for 5 to 10 minutes.
