help us make the Macalester-Groveland neighborhood a great place to live, work, learn, and play!
we value our neighborhood
Macalester-Groveland is a great place to live, work, learn, and play. We are a dynamic neighborhood with bustling streets, local businesses, parks and playgrounds, faith communities, elementary schools and universities. Here, we enjoy bikeways, walkable streets, alley gardens, native gardens, and Saint Paul’s first neighborhood-wide organics recycling program. Our neighborhood is a vibrant mix of families, seniors, business owners, students, renters, and long-time residents. We are proud of our neighborhood and we want to see it continue to thrive.
our work strengthens our community
The Macalester-Groveland Community Council is the only organization that dedicates 100% of its time to improving our neighborhood. We create opportunities to bring neighbors together through Mac-Grove Fest, Frost Fest, Alley Garden Awards and many other activities. We develop programs to improve the environment in which we live, such as MacGrove Moves, the Community Cleanups, and our recycling and composting initiatives. We foster citizen participation in government and community decisions on issues involving licensing and zoning, crime prevention, and transportation. You have a voice, and we want you to feel empowered to share it.
By cultivating community relationships through community events, volunteer opportunities, and community participation, we make our neighborhood a safer, stronger, and better place.
We depend on your involvement and financial support to continue this important work. We invite you to increase your involvement in your neighborhood by supporting the Council. Whether it’s participating on the Board, on a committee, volunteering, or monetarily, we welcome your contribution.
Thank you for your dedication to our neighborhood and your support of the Macalester-Groveland Community Council!
