SARPA and the West Summit Neighborhood Advisory Committee
The West Summit Neighborhood Advisory Committee was established in 2004 to collaborate on issues of interest to the University of St. Thomas and the St. Paul residential neighborhoods that surround it.
An agreement approved in August 2004 by the St. Paul City Council on St. Thomas' proposal to redevelop two Summit Avenue blocks included a condition to establish an advisory council comprising four neighborhood organizations and the university. The group is advisory to the city.
Representatives from St. Thomas, the Merriam Park Community Council, the Macalester-Groveland Community Council, the Summit Avenue Residential Preservation Association and Neighbors United convened in September 2004 and formed the West Summit Neighborhood Advisory Committee (WSNAC).
