More about this organization
The Macalester-Groveland Community Council was created to facilitate communication between the residents of the area and elected officials. Their mission is to foster citizen participation in government and community decisions that make their neighborhood a great place to live, work, learn and play. The Macalester-Groveland Community Council adopted a mission to make the Macalester-Groveland neighborhood the "greenest neighborhood in St. Paul" and are looking for residents to help them work towards this goal.
Mac-Groveland residents now have access to solar and savings on monthly electricity bills - without installing solar at their own homes. Through community solar gardens, neighbors join together to purchase their electricity at a discount through a large solar array (3 to 5 acres.)
