Participate in a Committee
Community members meet regularly through LCC committees on a range of topics. 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.
Share Your Time and Talents
We have both one-time and ongoing volunteer opportunities to match your interests and availability. Help plan community events, beautify the Midtown Greenway with native plantings, distribute flyers, translate materials, greet neighbors at community festivals and potlucks, write a blog post for our website, assist with outreach efforts, help with website design, visit us at the office and help with mailings—we welcome your ideas to add to this list! Call the LCC office (612-722-4529) for more information and watch this page for current and upcoming opportunities.
