Richmond Beach Road Rechannelization

Open House - Richmond Beach Library - June 22

The Richmond Beach Road corridor is an important east west connection serving Shoreline residents in the NW quadrant of the City. The primary goal of the project is to improve safety and mobility for all corridor users including people driving, walking, and biking.

The project will rechannelize Richmond Beach Rd/ NW 195th St/ NW 196th St from Dayton Ave N to 24th Ave NW from two lanes in each direction to one vehicle lane in each direction, bike lanes, and a center turn lane. The rechannelization provides the ability to implement onstreet bike lanes, add pedestrian refuge space for people crossing the street, and helps mitigate the vehicle collision patterns seen along the corridor. more…

The City will be holding the first public meeting for the Richmond Beach Road Rechannelization project.
When: June 22, 2017 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Where: Richmond Beach Library, Large Meeting Room
Why: Come learn about the project and tell us how you use Richmond Beach Road now and how you’d like to use it in the future.

Public Art and Orcas!

RBCA Community Meeting - April 11

Show up for the April 11 RBCA community meeting and we will reward you with a special treat! As (hopefully) you know by now, rather soon over 20 Orcas will grace various public spots in Richmond Beach, in the form of creative renditions by local artists. What you don’t know until now is that your reward for attendance at the April RBCA meeting is a first-ever peek at some of the completed art pieces. more…

To be more specific, four local artists in our Orca Public Art Project will be on hand with their completed art piece for your viewing pleasure. The artists will talk about the process each of them used to embellish their art piece, as well as the artistic message they convey through their completed art. Following the presentations, there will be a Q and A discussion among artists and community members.

In addition to the dialogue with artists, community members in attendance will hear Eric Friedli, the City of Shoreline Director of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources, talk about the goals for public art in Shoreline and how the Richmond Beach Public Art Project fits into these goals. Plus he will highlight for you about 25 pieces of public art already in place across Shoreline.

Last but not least, Alisa Lemire Brooks, Orca Network’s Whale Sighting Network Coordinator, will join us to talk about the role of their network in raising awareness about the whales of our region and the importance of providing them healthy and safe environments.

If you want to witness the very first sneak-a-peek preview of completed Richmond Beach Orca art pieces, you need to “Orca-strate” your calendar so you can attend this exciting meeting on Tuesday, April 11, 7:30 p.m. in the lower level of the Richmond Beach Congregational Church at the corner of Richmond Beach Road and 15th Avenue NW.

Board Positions Open for May Election

by Sheri Ashleman

Although elections for the Richmond Beach Community Association are not held until May, it is not too early to think about serving on the board. more…

Are you interested in maintaining and improving the quality of life in our neighborhood? Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity for personal and professional growth? Would you like to meet people in our community?

As a neighborhood organization, we strive to keep the community informed on important issues, to host social gatherings and community events that strengthen our community ties and to work together on local issues that affect our community. We encourage you to be a part of this important work with a group of dedicated, enthusiastic volunteers.

Board members are elected by the general membership to serve two-year, staggered terms. This means roughly half of the board seats are up for election each year. Board members are expected to attend a monthly board meeting and most of the general meetings and to contribute four to eight hours each month to the association’s business and volunteer needs.

RBCA invites potential candidates to learn more about being on the board by contacting RBCA Secretary Christie Quigley at secretary@richmondbeachwa.org.
