We provide a way for renters, homeowners, businesses, and nonprofits to create a vibrant, safe, welcoming neighborhood for those who live, work, and visit here.
What We Do
Every Saint Paul neighborhood has a district council. Here in District 10, that's us: The Como Community Council.
We are not part of City government or part of a political party. We are an independent nonprofit. We are the glue behind neighborhood action. We connect neighbors with other neighbors who want to accomplish things. And we mix work with fun.
Big picture, we magnify the ideas and power of our community members. We give residents, businesses, and local organizations a constructive, respected, ongoing way to combine voices. We push for decisions that are made from the bottom up, not the top down. We provide a trusted space to talk and listen, the support for grassroots energy, a hub for local partnerships, a way to stay informed, a place to get things done.
When we can, we work cooperatively with institutions, city staff, and elected officials. When we can't, we challenge them. We are accountable to our neighbors, and run by a 17-member board of volunteers elected by our neighbors.
