a holiday card & an important message …

Starting in March, things appeared to be up in the air for Rose Park Neighborhood Association. Like many Long Beach nonprofit organizations, we wondered how to move forward with the series of events, resident-led initiatives and street actions. How do we stay connected to residents and their needs during this time, while pressing issues are rising to the surface?

The past 10 months highlighted much needed services for our most vulnerable residents and demanded that we work with community partners to implement real change for safer streets that no longer allows pedestrian fatalities and works to slow traffic speed. This year provided an opportunity to slow down, identify, connect, and develop new partnerships to work toward solutions and action in 2021. If any of these initiatives speak to you, we hope you will join us by emailing info@rpna.org. 2021 priorities include:


Pedestrian & Street Safety

Food Security for Older Adults 

Friendship Corner Mural at Dawson & 7th Street – vacant space revitalization

Alleyway Improvement – walkable spaces & places

LAST CALL TO PROVIDE YOUR INPUT FOR SAFER STREETS

Rose Park Neighborhood is working with Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) to describe the impact of high risk and unsafe situations on our streets and sidewalks. We are requesting the feedback of Rose Park Neighborhood residents to better understand the resident experience when utilizing our high traffic intersections, residential areas, bike boulevards, alleyways and bus stops.
