The Reed Neighborhood Association (RNA) was organized in September 1976, motivated by the need to present an “official voice” when communicating with City Hall and other agencies over neighborhood concerns. The RNA is a member of the Southeast Uplift Neighborhood Coalition.

The RNA Board officers are elected at the May annual meeting and meet regularly; general meetings are held four times a year. Both Board and general meetings are open to all who work or reside in the Reed neighborhood. Time, location, and agenda are announced at least a week prior to the meetings.

RNA Board members review land use and transportation issues, community concerns, holds voter forums, and plan events that bring neighbors together.  If you are interested in learning about events or have a suggestion for an event, please feel free to email the board President, at the email address listed below or check out our Facebook page and message a suggestion or comment there.

The RNA welcomes anyone to apply for board membership and/or offer their individual skills or expertise.

Current priorities of the RNA are:
bringing together all of the members of the neighborhood in mutual work and recreation; designing a Web site; creating a comprehensive, current email address list; working toward design overlay and historic designation to insure compatible development within the neighborhood; enlisting volunteers and future board members; strengthening our voice with City and Metro agencies; and maintaining the safety and livability of the neighborhood.
