The city of St. Paul is split up into 17 district (neighborhood) councils. St. Paul loves to redo the city website and during their last makeover, they removed a lot of information about district councils, and most of the links from this site are broken and I am in the process of removing them.
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 websites can be an excellent resource.
The map is an old one to use as a guide to figure out which district each neighborhood is in. If you are buying a house in St. Paul this is a wonderful way to learn more about each neighborhood.
Here are the actual names of the district councils. Just put the name in a search window and you will get to the correct website. District councils have information on neighborhood issues and there are opportunities to volunteer.
