TUESDAY AUG 20 — The RNA will hold its bi-monthly meeting 7:00-8:30 pm at Rudy’s BBQ on Lamar. The agenda will be posted later, but we plan for an update on the new city-wide rewrite of the City of Austin zoning code, progress on the proposed footbridge over Shoal Creek connecting to the Grove, and many other important and interesting items relevant to folks in Rosedale.
All Rosedale residents are welcome as always. Free BBQ and sides available!
A reminder about the celebration to close down Ramsey Park Pool for this summer. The party will be on Saturday, August 17th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. The Rosedale Neighborhood Association (RNA) will provide music, water, soft drinks, and snacks. Bring food to share or just come and say good-bye to the pool for 2019. See ya there!

RNA President for 2019
Consider joining us next Tuesday evening 7-9 pm at Rudy’s BBQ on Lamar Blvd in the Crockett Room (on the south end). We will enjoy the food, elect our 2019 officers and Steering Committee members, and discuss proposed changes to the RNA bylaws.
But mostly this is an excuse to meet and mingle with your neighbors.
To read about the proposed bylaw amendments:

Motivation for changes to the by-laws: RNA-by-laws-motivation-20181108
There are a few other items we will discuss, including our meeting schedule for 2019. As you may know, we won’t have a regular library meeting room until the Yarborough Library completes its planned but postponed remodeling.
We will also discuss the changes to Shoal Creek Blvd. proposed by the Shoal Creek Conservancy. Check it out at https://shoalcreekconservancy.org/
We’ll remind you about the Annual Meeting again, but please mark your holiday calendars!

Dear Rosedale Neighbors,
The ANNUAL BACK-TO-SCHOOL END-OF-SUMMER POOL PARTY at Ramsey Pool is a so on for this Saturday evening, August 18, from 6 to 8 pm. Come enjoy the pool, where the aerator has kept the water so refreshing this summer!
Enjoy pot-luck music, drinks, and snacks and friendly conversations for a couple hours while the sun sets languidly over the tennis courts. Bring a box or bag or pan of your favorite picnic-table goodies to share. We will provide paper cups and napkins and plates and drinks.
The pool closes for the season at the end of the party, so this is your last chance this summer to skip your Saturday night bath!
