The Highland District Council (HDC) is governed by a Board of Directors who are elected by residents to bring the voices of the community to the district council, and in turn, to the City of St. Paul. HDC will be holding our annual election for grid representatives and at-large representatives to join the Board of Directors at the end of April. The following positions will be up for election:
- One representative from each of the odd-numbered grids (Grids 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12) See a map of the grids in Highland Park.
- Two at-large and one at-large alternative representatives from any of the grids in Highland Park
Board members are expected to attend monthly board and committee meetings, volunteer for at least four events during the year, serve on task forces and participate in public events, forums and projects sponsored by the HDC.
