Welcome to the Longfellow Community Council

A neighborhood organization for Cooper, Hiawatha, Howe & Longfellow.

We’re looking for passionate community members to join our board of directors!

Becoming a board member with LCC is a great way to connect with community and make an impact on the Greater Longfellow neighborhood. There are seats open across our four communities (Cooper, Hiawatha, Howe, and Longfellow) and a business representative seat. Call us for accommodations 612-722-4529. 

“I truly believe that knowing our neighbors and being connected to one another is one of the ways to make our community more welcoming, safe, and peaceful for everyone. As a board member, I’ve been able to make more of those connections  and it’s been a really neat experience to see all the different ways that LCC is making an impact as well.

Neighborhood Activities & Events

Participate in a Committee

Community members meet regularly through LCC committees. Whether you are interested in safety, housing, development, the environment, schools, commercial revitalization or other issues. Our committees are great forums to bring attention to topics that are important to you and work with others on planning efforts and activities.
