Meet the Community Council

What is a Community Council?

In a large city like Saint Paul it is easy to feel like you don’t have a say in the decisions that affect you. Community Councils are a way to give residents a voice in the decisions that affect their neighborhoods and our city.

District 2 is one of Saint Paul’s 17 planning districts. We are located in the northeast 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.

Each of the city’s planning districts has a Community Council as its official citizen participation organization. District 2 Community Council is your neighborhood organization. We are not part of city government—although we often cooperate with the city and police in addressing problems.
