During a Tuesday afternoon meeting, the St. Paul Port Authority could address issues surrounding the redevelopment site near the new soccer stadium.

KSTP has previously reported complicated lease and mortgage agreements with existing businesses and strip mall owners are stalling the groundbreaking for the redevelopment project.


The port authority is also expected to talk about the costs and funding of site cleanup.

Last week, the city voted to redirect $900,000 from some tax increment financing districts to help cover the city's $1.2 million portion of cleanup costs.

The total cost of cleanup could be as high as $7 million.
