RNA’s regular meeting October 8th, 7pm

Rosedale Kitchen & BarThe Rosedale Neighborhood Association meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 8, from 7-9 pm will be held at the new Rosedale Kitchen and Bar at 39th & Lamar (in Lamar Central). More details on meeting logistics will follow.

This meeting will be devoted to discussion of the City of Austin’s proposed rewrite of the Land Development (Zoning) Code, which is slated to be released in a staff report, including maps of the transition zones, on October 4.

Please follow related announcements on the Rosedale Yahoo! group, particularly those from Carl Reynolds, RNA’s zoning and development point person.

We will have city council member representatives at the RNA meeting to help answer our questions and describe the process, including upcoming opportunities for public comment.

I’d like to extend enormous thanks to both Rosedale Kitchen & Bar and Rudy’s Bar-B-Q on North Lamar for their willingness to help RNA out with meeting space.

Thanks Rosedale!

Live from Ramsey Pool: It’s SATURDAY NIGHT POOL PARTY!

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 Meeting Tuesday, June 18 at Rudy’s

The next meeting of the Rosedale Neighborhood Association will be held in the back room at Rudy’s BBQ on Tuesday, June 18, at 7 pm. This is in lieu of the regularly scheduled meeting for June 4, which is cancelled.

The June 18 meeting will focus primarily on the City of Austin’s new rewrite of the Land Development Code. The current rewrite revisits many of the same goals and changes that were proposed by CodeNext, and has the same potential to profoundly change the way Rosedale and the remainder of the city develops. It is on a fast track, and has substantial council support. I urge everyone in Rosedale to become informed regarding this matter. 

Some comments from Council Member Leslie Pool regarding the new code rewrite are posted here:

Thanks everyone. Additional announcements will follow as we approach June 18.

RNA Annual Meeting & Holiday Social Tuesday Dec. 18 at Rudy’s

Dear Neighbors,

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:
Proposed bylaws: RNA-by-laws-proposed-20181108
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

We’ll remind you about the Annual Meeting again, but please mark your holiday calendars!

May 8th Neighborhood Happy Hour

Hello Rosedalians,

I wanted to plan a fun Happy Hour for our neighborhood and reached out to our newest Rosedale restaurant to see if they would be interested in partnering up to host it. The Guild,, has not only cheerfully agreed, but will run drink specials for us and offer a few appetizers for us to try (first come, first serve). How nice, right?!?

I am curious and excited to check them out and I bet you are too! So, spread the word and mark your calendars- May 8th from 5:00-6:30 PM (3800 N Lamar Blvd Suite 170, Austin, TX 78756). I look forward to seeing you all there for a relaxed evening of socializing among friends, both old and new.

P.S. If you are thinking you may stay for dinner after, you may want to make a reservation.
