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:

Neighborhood Development & Transportation

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.

River Gorge

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.

Community Connections

Builds strong intergenerational, multicultural, safe neighborhoods through community ownership.
