District 10 Como Community Council

Reflections, looking ahead


Thanks to everyone who participated in our work in the Como Neighborhood in 2022. By the numbers, D10 published 51 Friday Newsletters in 2022, held 65 monthly board and committee meetings with nearly 700 attendees, successfully transitioning to hybrid meetings the second half of the year. We coordinated 34 community events where we counted approximately 2,700 attendees! Many of these events were new for us in 2022, and we’re pumped to invite everyone back as these become annual events around the neighborhood. We’ve been planning ahead at D10 and it’s bearing fruit not only in increased engagement, but in building deeper connections and additional opportunities for partnerships and funding. We welcome you to get involved with us in 2023!

Como Blizzard Breakfast FEB. 4
Join Parks and Rec and the Como Community Council for a Pancake Breakfast and Winter Activities at North Dale Recreation Center on February 4, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. Try snowshoeing, cross country skiing and skating before you warm up with a bonfire and s’mores. After all the fun activities, head inside for a pancake breakfast, neighborhood resources, a Como History Photo Harvest, kids activities and much more!
If you’re interested in planning our Como community events with us, you can join our Neighborhood Relations Committee meetings on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:15 p.m.

Join our volunteer writers
Are you good at sharing good stories? Then you could be exactly who we are looking for to help with year two of D10 Como Park’s Know Your Como project. Over the past year D10 Neighborhood Relations committee has continued to coordinate volunteer writers from the neighborhood to celebrate and appreciate the large and small contributions of our neighbors and the diversity that make Como a special place, and expanded the history stories with help from the Neighborhood History Project. The latest Know Your Como pieces are posted in the D10 website newsfeed and weekly newsletter, but you can find all the articles to date at www.district10comopark.org/kyc/.
This year the group will be looking at featuring places and history, in addition to community members. Email if you would like to join the volunteer team!
