The city of St. Paul has 17 district community councils. Community Councils are a way to give residents a voice in the decisions that affect their neighborhoods and our city. Each of the city’s planning districts has a Community Council as its official citizen participation organization. When considering which St. Paul neighborhood to buy a home in, the district council staff and web sites can be an excellent resource. For a list of the district councils go to the City of St. Paul web site. To learn even more about a neighborhood check out neighborhood profiles provided by the Wilder Foundation.
