Sensing a loss of community among residents, the City Council created the nine-member Neighborhood Revitalization Commission in January 1992. The purpose of the commission was to encourage the creation of neighborhood organizations that would:
- bring neighbors together to solve common problems;
- create and maintain a sense of community;
- improve the appearance of neighborhoods; and
- increase the feeling of security.
The commission expanded the number of neighborhoods from 7 to 34, produced a manual for creating neighborhood organizations, and co-sponsored a Home Remodeling Fair in March 1993 at the Junior High.
Today there are 36 official neighborhoods that make up St. Louis Park (map). Below is a list and links to where we have a dedicated page to the history of the neighborhood. We would love help filling out the history of each neighborhood, so please contact us if you have corrections, additions, or other comments about the information we have below. You can also go to the City’s Neighborhoods web page to find additional information.
