A business owned by the College of Saint Benedict in downtown St. Joseph will be closing its doors at the end of May. On A Lark is a women's boutique store (also offering unique items) in the Mill Stream Shops and Lofts development.
St. Joseph is considering updating an ordinance that would ban biking and rollerblading on downtown sidewalks. The city says space is limited and narrow on the sidewalks. The ordinance would apply from 2nd Avenue Northwest to 1st Avenue Southeast.
A popular building in downtown St. Joseph will see some updates in the near future. The old Loso building at 25 Minnesota Street West is home to the Minnesota Street Market, Closet to Closet and the Artisan Naan Bakery. A balcony will be added to the front of the building and will feature historical photographs. Other improvements include repainting the building facade, adding more lighting and reconstructing the roof overhang.
