Special Election for board
The Como Community Council Board will hold a special election Oct. 15 to fill the six months remaining in the term of a representative from Sub-District 4, which encompasses South Como and Energy Park. The vacancy is the result of the election of board member Cody Zwiefelhofer to vice-chair.
Want to vote? The special election will be on Tuesday Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Como Park Streetcar Station, which is at the northeast corner of Lexington and Horton. All renters, homeowners, and other residents age 16 or older who live in Sub-District 4 are eligible to vote. So are authorized representatives from a business or nonprofit organization located in Sub-District 4. Community members must vote in person; there is no absentee or proxy voting.
Want to run? The deadline to get on the ballot is past, but applicants can still run as write-in candidates on the night of the election. You can get more details about the position on the District 10 website.

A Vision for Como Park paths
The Como Community Council on Sept. 17 approved a series of recommendations from its Pathways work group to make bicycle and pedestrian paths in Como Regional Park “more useful to more people more often.”
The recommendations include giving Saint Paul Parks and Recreation specific suggestions to improve the condition and function of paths; upgrade signs along paths; create maps, kiosks, interpretative displays and other “wayfinding” tools; and upgrade amenities along paths. You can read a short version of the report and recommendations on District 10’s website: www.district10comopark.org.
