Our Ravenna-Bryant friends and neighbors to the south/west are hosting their Spring community meeting on April 3rd at 7PM at the Ravenna-Eckstein Community Center (6535 Ravenna Avenue NE). They’ve had a busy year and have lots to share. Not only that, they’ve got a pretty amazing line up of speakers, some of whom will be speaking to relevant items for Wedgwood and the ongoing corridor/neighborhood planning for 35th Ave NE. According to the RBCA President’s letter to the neighborhood, their featured guests include:
- Jim Diers, former (and founding) director of the Department of Neighborhoods: Jim will present stories about the power of communities working together. He’s known around the world for his work — check out his website at neighborpower.org.
- Seattle City Council Member Sally Bagshaw, Chair of the Parks and Neighborhoods Committee: Councilmember Bagshaw will speak about the bourgeoning Greenway movement (more HERE and HERE), and answer your questions about the City’s relationship with neighborhoods.
- Tom Donnelly, from the RBCA Land Use Committee, will discuss efforts to develop and review planning ideas for our own neighborhood, and hopefully get you thinking about ways that you can get involved.
This is an open community meeting and everyone is welcome. See you there!
