Turn asphalt into flowers…

We need you!

Union Park District Council is a nonprofit made up of an all-volunteer board of directors.  We need new board members!  Serving as a director on a district council is a great opportunity to make a difference in your neighborhood.

And yes – from asphalt to flowers?  Many of the neighborhoods in our district have flower gardens and safer traffic thanks to the work of past board members and conscious votes.  You can make a difference, too!

Representatives for grids 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 15
At-large Residential Director for Merriam Park, Snelling-Hamline, and Lexington-Hamline areas
At-large Nonprofit Director
At-large Business Director
