Join us for our October meeting

Please join us for our October general meeting. In addition to hearing community news, concerns and opportunities, we will provide an overview of the neighborhood association and its governance, and then elect our board for the coming year.

We have much to celebrate and many opportunities to improve our neighborhood in the year ahead!

We have a number of open board positions and welcome new board members. The new board will vote for the chair and vice-chair for the next two year position. We also welcome general members who wish to be involved in specific projects.

All are welcome at our meeting. We encourage you to join us in person at the Roseway Heights School library. You may also join via Zoom.

Meeting Details

The Roseway Heights Middle School library is on the second floor of the building. Enter at the main entrance on Siskiyou. To the right of the entrance are stairs to the second floor. The library is to the right at the top of the stairs. The elevator is west down the front hallway at the bottom of the ramp.

Per current county guidance, masks are optional.

Ice Cream Pop-up Event

Please join us next Sunday from 2-3pm at our Ice Cream pop-up event! We’ll have an ice cream truck with free ice cream and good conversation with neighbors. NE 72nd and Mason.

This is a relatively short-notice event. We didn’t have the capacity to organize a full-blown Ice Cream Social in July, but we wanted to provide treats and an excuse for neighbors to gather before the cool weather.

Special thanks Erin Werner for organizing!

A successful community cleanup!

On August 27, the Roseway Neighborhood Association held its biggest fundraiser of the year, our community cleanup event. The community cleanup allowed over 150 neighbors to clear out junk from their yards, sheds, garages, and residences. We collected 6.9 tons of bulky waste, over 600 cubic feet of electronics and scrap metal. Thanks to grants from OCCL and Metro, we netted over $2,800 to be used for neighborhood projects in the coming year.

Thanks to over 30 volunteers for helping make this event successful.

Keep the cleanup in mind the next time you see junk accumulating in your household. It’s a great way to clear out space! We plan to have our next cleanup in May of 2023.

We look forward to your input on how we use the funds we raised. Please consider coming to our next association meeting and consider joining our board. While any Roseway resident or business owner may become a member of the association, board directors steer the priorities for the association.

September Neighborhood Association Hybrid Meeting

Based on the positive feedback from our last hybrid meeting, our next neighborhood association meeting will include an in-person as well as remote option. All are welcome. You may also join via Zoom, so please choose the option you’re most comfortable with.

We expect to see some new faces, so we will provide an introduction to the neighborhood association—who we are, what we do, and how you can get involved.

We will discuss the recent street takeovers in the heart of the Roseway neighborhood and what we can do to keep our neighborhood safe and livable.

We will also review the results of the association’s Community Cleanup last month. The event raised money for future projects; we want to hear from you about what projects you’re passionate about.

We always leave time for other community concerns.

Please join us, in person or virtually!
