The November public meeting of the Richmond Beach Community Association will be on the third Tuesday of the month, November 15, so as not to conflict with the election. The place and time will be the usual, 7:30pm in the basement of the Richmond Beach Congregational Church at the corner of 15th Avenue NW and Richmond Beach Road.
The neighborhood recently welcomed Wonderland Developmental Center, an institution for children with special needs. They are headquartered in the old Richmond Beach Library building. Director Mary Kirchoff will describe their facility and the work they do.
Shoreline Schools' Assistant Superintendent Brian Schultz will come to discuss the approaching reconfiguration to Grades 6-7-8 middle schools and what this means for kids, families and the community at large. Later in the program he will be joined by Superintendent Rebecca Miner, who will explain how the existing Einstein and Kellogg Middle Schools will be upgraded and paid for.
Shoreline Community College President Cheryl Roberts is scheduled to talk about the exciting additions to their program and the dramatic move toward having some on-campus housing. SCC has hosted a series of forums on site on these topics over the past year, but is now going out to the neighborhoods to make sure everyone is well-informed.
Coffee and cookies will be served during social time starting at 7:00pm.
