is a Community Council?

decisions that affect you. Community Councils are a way to give residents a voice
in the decisions that affect their neighborhoods and our city.

corner of St. Paul. Our boundaries are: Larpenteur Ave. on the north; McKnight
Road on the east; Minnehaha Ave. to the south; and Johnson Parkway and the old
Burlington Northern railroad berm to the west.
