The Highland District Council (HDC) is recognized by the City of St. Paul as the official citizen participation organization for the residents, businesses, and institutions in District 15. Our organization helps identify and organize around community-based initiatives and advocate for our residents. We listen, inquire, plan, and act on a wide range of matters, including zoning, land use, transportation, capital spending, and environmental sustainability issues. We also partner with local businesses and other city services to host events throughout the year.
Highland District Council (HDC) is piloting a new role on the council for students enrolled grade 11-12 or college who live or go to school in District 15/Highland Park (zip code 55116). As a liaison with the council, you will learn more about city government, transportation, development, and community engagement while providing us with valuable insight into what’s most important for the next generation of Highland residents.
Students in grades 11, 12 and college can apply here or below by September 25 at 5pm.
