RCPC Board Vacancy Offers Opportunity

Thursday, July 10, 2014

Are you looking to help promote community projects that enhance the quality of life in Rockridge? Are you concerned about traffic, development issues, parks and schools? Rockridge needs people like you.

Serving on the Rockridge Community Planning Council (RCPC) board of directors provides you with the perfect volunteer opportunity to work on these issues and more. Boardmembers serve a two-year term.

RCPC, a nonprofit public benefit corporation (501(c)(3)), represents Rockridge to the city of Oakland on such matters as zoning, development and crime. It acts as a community steward on a variety of issues, ranging from land use to traffic and schools. RCPC has also spearheaded neighborhood improvement projects such as the Rockridge Branch Library, the Rockridge-Temescal Greenbelt (Frog Park) and Hardy Dog Park. The Rockridge News, published by the RCPC, serves as an important vehicle for neighborhood communication. Recent RCPC Town Hall meeting topics have included plans proposed for the Rockridge Shopping Center, Rockridge schools, and a presentation on local planning issues by Oakland's director of planning.

Prospective candidates must be at least 18 years of age and must reside within RCPC boundaries as shown at www.rockridge.org.
