Much of LCC’s work is done through our volunteer Committees. If you have a concern you would like the Longfellow Community Council to discuss, most likely you will be referred to the appropriate committee to get things started:
Tracks development projects and zoning issues in the neighborhood and advocates for the revitalization of commercial areas and local businesses.
Monitors and provides input for street and bike route projects and promotes the greening of the neighborhood through the use of native plants and greening in public places.
Works to protect and enhance the Mississippi River Gorge, sponsoring efforts such as the Gorge Stewards, a program of Friends of the Mississippi River. Raises awareness about water quality through promotion of native plants and rain gardens.
Builds strong intergenerational, multicultural, safe neighborhoods through community ownership
Supports Longfellow by raising money, communicating with the neighborhood, and marketing the Longfellow Community Council.
