About Us and Membership

The Summit Avenue Residential Preservation Association (SARPA) is dedicated to the preservation of Saint Paul's historic Summit Avenue as a residential neighborhood. SARPA was commissioned in 1986 by Mayor George Latimer and the St. Paul City Council to preserve the residential quality of Summit Avenue for future generations.

SARPA generally meets on the third Monday of each month. SARPA also hosts an annual meeting at which there is a guest speaker or speakers presenting topics of interest to members and friends.

Join SARPA and be a part of preserving the historic, residential and urban park character of Summit Avenue. Each person who owns a property, or lives on Summit (or who is otherwise interested!) may be a voting member of SARPA. Membership is $30 per household.
