Tuesday: RBCA Monthly Meeting

Your Ravenna-Bryant Community Association will hold its regular monthly meeting tomorrow (Tuesday) evening, 7-9pm at the Ravenna Eckstein Community Center. The board will be discussing two critical topics and your input is needed.

First, new board President Inga Manskopf (read a recap of our annual meeting including new board list here) will lead a discussion on the board’s collective vision for the RBCA and our broader Ravenna-Bryant community. Some of the issues to be discussed include: what is our role in how best to gracefully grow our fantastic neighborhoods; what can be done to encourage more member participation; in what ways can we work for safer and more walkable neighborhoods; on which projects in our area should we lead?

Following this, Vice President Jorgen Bader will engage the attendees on a conversation around significant proposed changes to Metro’s bus routes in our area, including new routes to the Husky Stadium light rail station and the dissolution of route #71.
