Board of Directors

The Como Community Council has three standing committees: Environment, Land Use, and Neighborhood Relations.  The committees oversee initiatives and events that come out of brainstorming by members or arise directly from neighbors. Committees meet once a month and are open to ALL community members. 

Environment Committee (1st Wednesdays at 6pm)

This committee oversees environmental protections and sustainability initiatives in the community, especially those affecting Como Lake. Members helped set up the Capitol Region Watershed District, the Como Woodland Outdoor Classroom, and the food scraps recycling site on Beulah Ln. It frequently sponsors educational opportunities on topics such as composting, pollinator habitat, and eco-friendly yard care.

Neighborhood Relations Committee (1st Wednesdays at 7:15pm)

These committee members deal with fun stuff (such as our annual Ice Cream Social and other community events) and not-so-fun stuff (such as crime prevention and safety). This is the committee that oversees outreach to new community members, members who are not as connected to the neighborhood as they could be, and develops the tools to help us all build stronger neighborhood cohesion.

Land Use Committee (3rd Tuesdays at 6pm)

As the title suggests, this committee handles the nitty-gritty issues of zoning, development proposals, and how they affect the neighborhood. Housing, transportation, relations with institutions, park use, licenses, and variance requests are among the topics these committee members deal with. Land Use also oversees ongoing efforts to address the impacts the State Fair and other large events have on the residential character of the neighborhood.

D10 Board Meetings (3rd Tuesdays at 7:15pm)

The D10 Board meets monthly and approves committee actions and handles other organizational business and discussions.

Special Projects

When the need arises, the Council creates short-term work groups or ad-hoc committees to focus exclusively on specific issues facing the neighborhood, or to develop ideas that arise from community members.
