Tuesday’s land use meeting to cover neighborhood development topics

On Tuesday, the RBCA Land Use Committee will host a community meeting about several projects happening in the neighborhood.  The meeting will take place 7:00 p.m. at the Messiah Lutheran Church, 7050 35th Ave NE.  The agenda includes an update about the development of the former Children’s Home site and the sale of the Theodora.

During last week’s RBCA board meeting, members voted to send the following letter to Volunteers of America (VOA), owners of the Theodora, in response to their letter earlier this spring.

Dear Mr. Smith:

On June 3, 2014, the Board of Directors of the Ravenna-Bryant Community Association discussed your response to our letter of March 7th. On behalf of the Board, I am writing to let you know that we appreciated hearing of your plans to assist the residents of the Theodora.

As members of our community, the well-being of the residents of the Theodora is of utmost importance to us and we are pleased to hear of your commitment to assist in their transition. We look forward to hearing that each resident has been successfully housed in a new location.

Tony Provine

In March, the RBCA board expressed concerns to VOA about the sale of the building.
