The River Road Community Organization (RRCO) involves and represents neighbors to increase the quality of life in the neighborhood.
- Facilitating civic empowerment in decisions affecting our neighborhood. We work with city and county agencies on development and planning. We provide forums to identify, discuss and resolve neighborhood issues and meet with candidates.
- Fostering rich social networks and relationships among neighbors. We host regular social events, encourage neighbors to volunteer in the neighborhood, and participate in work parties.
- Guiding stewardship of the natural world that we enjoy. We collaborate with the city and other non-profits to maintain public space.
