Nice to Meet You, We Are SUPC
Since the mid-1970s, Saint Paul has been divided into seventeen districts to allow and encourage citizen participation in the process of local government. Each district is represented by a community council that works to gather input from residents on community concerns and forward advisory opinions for Saint Paul City Council consideration. The Summit-University Planning Council serves the over 18,000 residents within District 8. District 8's boundaries are University Avenue on the North, Summit Avenue on the South, John Ireland Blvd on the East, and Lexington Pkwy on the West.
The Summit University Planning Council works to improve the common good of the community. It promotes enlightened, active constituency by providing information and conducting forums enabling residents to address issues that affect them. In addition to community partnerships and programs that foster holistic health in our community, the Council will further advise the City of St Paul on zoning and city plans as they affect District 8.

Block Clubs in Summit U
People are social beings. It is a proven fact that humans think more flexibly, are more likely to thrive, and just plain have more fun when we function in the context of close, rational relationships with each other. We may at times feel that living and acting in isolation is a more comfortable option, but it will not help us to solve problems and it's nowhere near as much fun.
When you already know your neighbors, it's much easier to collaborate on solving problems and sharing opportunities. The Summit-University Planning Council will communicate important issues to your block through the block club coordinators.
Block clubs serve as the "building blocks" for involvement of residents in a range of activities.
Contact us to see if there is a block club in your neighborhood, or if you are interested in starting one!
