About Us

Official Mission Statement:
The Waite Park Community Council serves as a forum to support the interests of the Waite Park neighborhood to maintain a high quality of life through community engagement.

What is the WPCC, in brief
The Waite Park Community Council (WPCC) is a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)3 organization officially recognized by the City of Minneapolis as the neighborhood representative of Waite Park. Founded in 1954, the WPCC has long served as a forum to support the interests of the Waite Park neighborhood, and to maintain a high quality of life through community engagement. This forum is used to discuss neighborhood issues, by inviting local policy makers, school faculty, business owners, and other neighborhood leaders to speak. The WPCC encourages all Waite Park residents to attend meetings and participate in discussions.

Monthly public meetings, first Wednesdays
The WPCC holds public meetings on the first Wednesday of each month at the Waite Park Recreation Center (1810 34th Ave. NE). Meeting topics are often promoted in the Waite Park Voice newsletter, as well as here at the WPCC Web site, Facebook page (Facebook.com/WaitePark) and Twitter feed (Twitter.com/WaiteParkCC).

Consider serving as a board member
The WPCC board of directors is comprised of fifteen volunteer neighborhood members. To serve on the board, an individual must be at least eighteen years old and live, work, own property or a business in Waite Park. Board directors are elected to two-year terms, with officers elected at our Annual Town Meeting.
    For those interested in formally joining the WPCC board, please submit a letter of interest with basic contact information via e-mail or our mailing address (below), or simply attend an upcoming public board meeting and find out how you can get involved in the Waite Park neighborhood, as a director or volunteer.

If there is an issue you would like brought before the board, please e-mail us or call us at (612) 789-5104.
