What is RWNA?
RWNA is a neighborhood located in the heart of Bend, Oregon. We have a diverse mixture of businesses and residences (RWNA Map). Our mission is to protect and enhance our neighborhood.
How RWNA operates
An elected board of six officers, plus volunteers, meet between 4pm to 6pm, on the 3rd Monday of each month, at 16 NW Kansas Avenue, to perform the responsibilities as outlined by our bylaws. We forward city notices and RWNA notices to our members to provide background on hot topics effecting our neighborhood.
Members need to know their opinions matter. Attend RWNA board meetings. Attend city sponsored meetings, hearings or citizen community meetings. Participate in polling's, forums or just email your RWNA board. The future of your community is at stake.
Enhancing our Neighborhood
RWNA wants to be proactive in seeking ways to enhance our neighborhood without waiting for the city to take up a cause.We want to think outside the box and be open to any and all suggestions.
The board feels it is essential to provide a platform for the sharing of thoughts on the hot topics. Members can submit (brief) statements about a listed hot topic and /or suggest a new hot topic. Polling will be used to gauge how the membership feels about a topic.
