You’ve seen the yard signs by SHSA (Save Historic Saint Andrews) in the South Como and nearby neighborhoods. It is a battle they’ve been waging with the Twin Cities German Immersion Charter School (TCGIS) when they announced they would bulldoze the historic church building in order to expand the school in April of 2018.
The Historic Church sits at 1031 Como Ave, down the street from McMurray Fields of Como Park. St Andrew’s Map

Save Historic St. Andrew’s in Como Park
- Mayor Carter and the Saint Paul City Council
- United States of America
Historic Saint Andrew’s located in Como Park, Saint Paul, Minnesota is still in imminent danger of being demolished by the Twin Cities German Immersion school (TCGIS) as part of its expansion plan. In our previous petition we asked TCGIS to suspend the demolition until we could help find alternatives to demolition. We also initiated a study of the historic property and the Heritage Preservation Commission (HPC) recently voted (8-1) in favor of recommending St. Andrews as a Heritage Preservation Site. The final decision lies with the City Council and Mayor Carter.
We need your support – sign this petition, visit our Facebook site, call or write to the Saint Paul City Council members and Mayor Carter.
Petition by “Save Historic Saint Andrew’s” (SHSA)
• St. Andrew’s has long been a treasured part of the Como neighborhood. We ask that our public officials vote against destroying a piece of St. Paul’s history worthy of protection.
• We ask the City Council to approve the HPC findings that the building be designated a Heritage Preservation Site consistent with the existing City of Saint Paul’s Comprehensive Plan.
• The project would have a long-term negative impact on the historic and residential character of the neighborhood. To reduce this impact we ask City Officials to require TCGIS to develop a no-demolition alternative. This is a required consideration in all thorough planning processes.
