Welcome to Southeast St. Paul!
Our district council has a new name! The Southeast Community Organization is your connection to city and county officials. We can guide you to local government resources and keep you informed of issues that arise in our neighborhoods. In collaboration with community members in our district, we address issues surrounding zoning and development, the environment, parks and recreation, transportation, safety and other matters. We are also here to help you build relationships with your neighbors and create the kind of community you would like to see in our neighborhoods.
