September SNA Meeting and Ice Cream Social – Sunday 9/8, 4pm in Laurelhurst Park

Join us at the next meeting of the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association for a summer’s end celebration featuring ice cream provided by Ruby Jewel.  We’ll be gathering in Laurelhurst Park, just north of the pond at 4pm on Sunday, September 8th.  During the business portion of the meeting we’ll be discussing the increasingly controversial changes proposed to City Code 3.96 as well as planning for our October meeting, which will be entirely devoted to a panel discussion on the city’s housing crisis.

Full agenda

SNA Bylaws Revision Vote Coming up May 9th

Please join us on May 9th, 7pm – 9pm at SE Uplift for our annual Election and Potluck, where we will also be presenting a minor revision to the SNA Bylaws to the general membership for approval. Our goal is to increase participation among second- and third- shifters (i.e. those with non-traditional work hours) in our neighborhood by making our meeting schedule a little more flexible.
