Meridian Park Neighborhood Association seeks additional board members

Wednesday, May 2, 2018

Ronald Bog

Meridian Park residents, are you curious about your neighborhood?

Did you know:
  • Your neighborhood is the newest in Shoreline? It was not designated as an official neighborhood until 1995 when Shoreline became a city. The boundaries are Highway 99 to I-5, and N 160th St to N185th St.
  • Your neighborhood is steeped in history? But how could that be, given the first fact? The significance of the area goes back before settlers arrived when wetlands between Cromwell Park and Ronald Bog provided cranberries for native Duwamish families to harvest.
  • Your neighborhood has more parks within its boundaries than any other neighborhood in Shoreline? There are 5, ranging in size from Ronald Bog at 13.6 acres to Darnell Park at less than an acre.
  • You have an active Neighborhood Association? Meridian Park Neighborhood Association hosts monthly meetings on the third Tuesday of the month at Shoreline City Hall (in your neighborhood, too). Meetings are informative and engaging, a great way to find out what is happening in Meridian Park, and in the City. This is also an opportunity to get to know your neighbors.
In addition, if you have great ideas to implement with the MPNA team, and/or generally want to be of service in Meridian Park Neighborhood, visit this webpage and apply to become a candidate for the Board of Directors.

All are welcome. Applications are due by May 10, and elections will be held at the May 15th meeting. If you have questions regarding the application or Board responsibilities, please contact us by calling Cynthia Knox at 206-218-3302 or emailing us.

We can tell you that getting involved in our neighborhood is both rewarding and fun! Meridian Park Neighborhood Association does not discriminate based on age, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnic origin, religious beliefs, marital status, size, or physical ability.

Upcoming meetings:

Hear from Shoreline City Staff on May 15 about the future of Meridian Park; residential and business construction/development, traffic, parks, schools, the 185th St. project, and more.

Learn laws and tips on June 18 on how to get your neighbors together, close off your block to traffic and have a memorable party on National Night Out this summer.
