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.

We encourage everyone who’s interested in Summit Avenue to join us. Whether you work or walk along the avenue, are a home-owner, a student, or a neighbor, you are part of the community and have the potential to help in SARPA’s mission of preserving the historic, residential and urban park character of Summit Avenue. Check out or Join SARPA page to learn more about how you can become part of our association today.

The all-volunteer SARPA Board meets on the first Monday of each month, and hosts an annual meeting and a variety of events.
