As Waite Park’s official neighborhood organization, the Waite Park Community Council (WPCC), we’d like to tell you a bit about the organization.
What is the WPCC, in brief
The Waite Park Community Council (WPCC) is a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)3 organization officially recognized by the City of Minneapolis as the neighborhood representative of Waite Park. Founded in 1954, the WPCC has long served as a forum to support the interests of the Waite Park neighborhood, and to maintain a high quality of life through community engagement. This forum is used to discuss neighborhood issues, by inviting local policy makers, school faculty, business owners, and other neighborhood leaders to speak. The WPCC encourages all Waite Park residents to attend meetings and participate in discussions.
Monthly public meetings, first Wednesdays
The WPCC holds public meetings on the first Wednesday of each month at the Waite Park Recreation Center (1810 34th Ave. NE). Meeting topics are often promoted in the Waite Park Voice newsletter, as well as at the WPCC Web site, Facebook page and Twitter feed.

The WPCC board of directors is comprised of fifteen volunteer neighborhood members. To serve on the board, an individual must be at least eighteen years old and live, work, own property or a business in Waite Park. Board members are elected to two-year terms, with officers elected at our Annual Town Meeting.
