Our Commitment to Inclusion

Our board has endorsed a commitment to inclusion. Please join us in supporting this effort: The Union Park District Council endeavors that our community be a place where all are welcome and all are safe. Hatred or fear sown among us erodes the strength of our community and will not be tolerated. It is our board’s commitment to promote inclusion of ideas, people, voices and cultures, which make us stronger, more vibrant, economically more stable, and one of the best places to live, work and learn.

Committee on Land Use and Economic Development Meeting

Would you like to learn more about development projects going on in our community, and have a chance to influence them? From liquor licenses to affordable housing projects, our Committee on Land Use and Economic Development addresses what's happening in Union Park. This month's October 17 meeting will focus on the city's proposal to rezone parts of Snelling (and the three blocks of Selby adjacent to Snelling) to encourage higher density mixed-use development in areas currently zoned for businesses and multiunit housing. And, we'll be hearing from St. Thomas on its ambitious new campus master plan. You're welcome to join us! Learn more here:

Rent a Barricade

Our barricades are available on a first­ come, first­ served basis to residents who have already applied for a block party permit through the City of Saint Paul.
Our barricades are approved for block party use, but are smaller than the City’s, so they are not appropriate adjacent to higher traffic streets. A $40 fee and a $80 refundable deposit are required. 

Please plan to pay when you receive the barricades in cash or with two separate checks made out to UPDC. The $80 deposit will be returned when you return the barricades. (The city charges $143 for their barricades with the exception of National Night Out). 

To reserve a barricade contact (651)-645-6887 Wako at
