RNA meeting 4/2/2018 at La Mancha with CodeNext report

La Mancha RestaurantDear Rosedale,

With the Yarborough Library is undergoing renovations, the Rosedale Neighborhood Association will meet at alternate locations and times this year.

RNA meets this Wednesday, April 4, in a private dining room at La Mancha restaurant at 2203 Hancock Dr, 78756. The meeting will start at 7:00 pm, and light snacks like nachos and guacamole will be provided. If you’d like food or drinks for the meeting, we recommend arriving a few minutes early to order.

The main item on the agenda is an in-depth presentation headed by Chris and Gina Allen on the new Draft 3.0 of CodeNEXT and how it would affect Rosedale.

We will also hear a brief presentation from state officials regarding state construction in the 51st St/Lamar area that is scheduled to start around May 1.

Other matters for discussion include an update on Grove developments and a report on our discussions with Rudy’s BBQ regarding smoke from the new Lamar location.

Mark your calendar and let me ( know if you have any questions. A big thanks to La Mancha for letting us use the room and making RNA feel welcome!
