Step up!

Looking to make a difference? Every year RPNA elects its board. We do it in June. Want to step up? Yes you need to participate in monthly meetings; take leadership and generally do right by the organization and its mission. Send in to and we’ll give you the scoop.

And here is our mission statement. . .

The mission of the RPNA is to educate the residents, property and business owners within the RPNA boundaries, as well as city and neighboring communities about the Rose Park neighborhood. The purpose shall be to teach and disseminate education materials to the public, including, but not limited to, material relating to Rose Park and Rose Park South Historic Districts, historic and architectural preservation, zoning laws; crime statistics and community improvement, through publications, lectures, or otherwise. In so doing, RPNA will  improve the quality of life in the Rose Park Neighborhood Association area.
