Launching of the RBCA Book Club

The Ravenna-Bryant Community Association is starting a “Land Use Book Club.”  Our friends to the west of us in Roosevelt have gone through several stages of creating their Neighborhood Design Guidelines, a process by which the City’s Department of Planning and Development (DPD) helps the neighborhood identify how they want to grow as a community.  This book club is a jump start to that conversation, as the density from Roosevelt’s Sound Transit Station gradually moves east into our community.

The first book will be the classic by Jane Jacobs’s, Death and Life of Great American Cities.  You can see the Wikipedia definition here:

Third Place Books will have copies on hand for you to buy, or you can borrow a copy from the library.

Our first book club meeting will be on Wednesday February 27th, 2013 at the Ravenna Eckstein Community Center from 7-9 p.m.  There will be a moderator for the discussion.  Bring your ideas for the next book choice, as the RBCA plans to continue the book club on the 4th Wednesday of every month.
