Friends of Riverside is a neighborhood association whose primary goal is to begin to build a sustainable and resilient neighborhood. We are owner residents, renters, property owners, business owners with an understanding that living, working, owning, in the Friends of Riverside Neighborhood brings with it a responsibility to the community and a responsibility to come together and utilize our varied views, knowledge and unique experiences to shape our community.
Once a month we meet at a local restaurant or business to, eat, drink, hang out, and show our support for local businesses. It also allows neighbors to get to know each other in an informal settings. Check out the "Calendar" section at the top of the page to verify location and time.
Monthly Work Sessions
Instead of having formal meetings to discuss issues, a monthly “work” session will be organized in our neighborhood. Installing raised vegetable beds for seniors, projects for the kids, canoeing/kayaking, trail blazing, tree planting, educational activities with experts in graywater system installation, bike repair, farming, fruit and nut tree care. Whatever interests us and helps us create strong community.
