Ravenna-Bryant Community Association Community-Wide Meeting set for Tuesday, April 5th

After a few years of hibernation and nine months of reorganizing and rejuvenating board meetings, the Ravenna-Bryant Community Association is back in action, and holding a community-wide meeting at 7 PM on Tuesday, April 5, at the Ravenna-Eckstein Community Center (6536 Ravenna Avenue NE).

Anyone currently living in either the Ravenna or Bryant neighborhoods here in Northeast Seattle is welcome to attend (and become members, should they choose), as well as people who have businesses within those neighborhoods.

  • how to keep rats under control

Full disclosure: I have been attending the RBCA board meetings since August as both a community member and as a “hyperlocal journalist.” I do not plan on becoming a board member, but I do wish to help the organization grow and succeed. I have also been working on the RBCA’s new website, and advocating for greater transparency and increased communication between Northeast Seattle community organizations and the people they represent.
