More information

Block Clubs

  • A Block Club is a group of neighbors living within one or more city blocks who gather regularly to socialize, address common concerns, promote communication and improve block safety.
  • A block club traditionally includes houses on a block facing each other but may span several blocks and may include homes across an alley.
  • Residents can decide to organize at any level. However, there are basic aspects of a club that are necessary if they are to be recognized as such by their respective district council.
  • Clubs may also become involved with community issues such as working with beautification, traffic calming, crime prevention, community development, and other district council activities.

By being actively involved, residents take responsibility for themselves and their neighborhoods while working together to solve problems. If you’re interested in identifying or starting a block club, contact Patty Lammers at SPPD 651-266-5455, or reach out to us at mgcc@macgrove.org or call 651-695-4000.
