Neighbors at the “Friendship Corner” on E7th Street and Dawson Avenue

We are gathering community input from renters, business and homeowners to transform alleyways and surrounding areas into safe and accessible spaces that neighbors can utilize for connecting with community.

We are offering neighbors two opportunities to share their voice, vision and ideas for improving the area around Dawson Avenue and E7th Street.

Wednesday, November 17th at 9AM neighbors will walk with LBPD East Division Patrol Resource Officer Brendan Murphy. Officer Murphy is familiar with conducting Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) evaluations. Neighbors will share concerns and provide input. Meet at 621 Dawson Avenue on the SW corner of E7th Street and Dawson Avenue at 9AM in the parking lot of the flower wall.

Saturday, November 20th from 9AM to 12PM we invite you to meet at the “Friendship Corner” at 621 Dawson Avenue on the SW corner of E7th Street & Dawson Ave. (look for the Rose Park canopy and mosaic flower wall). Show up and share your voice, vision and ideas for area improvement.

Neighborhood walks along Dawson Avenue starting at 9am, 10am and 11am.

ArtWorksLBC, our community art and wellness program will be out beautifying the Dawson wall with mosaic flowers.

All are welcome and encouraged to attend. Chalk art available for kids to create their vision of a healthy, safe and clean neighborhood!


Email info@rpna.org for more information. If you are interested in volunteering for clean up, we are looking for volunteers on Wednesday, November 17th from 9am to 10am and Friday, November 19th from 10am to 12PM to prime and paint for the next mosaic wall installation. To volunteer, please email info@rpna.org.

Rose Park Neighborhood Association has been noticed of a proposed Public Hearing scheduled at LB Planning Commission this month for development on the southeast corner of E7th & Dawson. We are including the formal notice below.

We invite residents, business and property owners to be informed and voice their considerations at the Q&A session TODAY January 15th at noon. Please RSVP at info@rpna.org to receive a zoom invite. We encourage everyone to please email their questions and/or feedback to info@rpna.org.

Many may know that RPNA and nearby residents are working with the owner, Matt Hamilton to create the ArtWall at The Friendship Corner at the southwest corner of E7th & Dawson. This community building project took weeks to develop and we hope for further actions in this space.

There are many things to consider. Our need for housing, as well as how we can facilitate improvements for E7th Street, including the walk-ability and pedestrian safety of the neighborhood. We look forward to your comments. In addition, please reach out to the planners listed in the permit. They are aware of our Q&A session and urge residents to submit their concerns to the Planning Commission as well.
