RHA Operating Model



Ramsey Hill Association (RHA) is a membership organization that builds connected communities that celebrate our rich history and keep our diverse neighborhood safe. RHA supports programs and activities around historic preservation, neighborhood social events, parks and gardens, community partnerships, and crime prevention.  

Join RHA and become involved in the neighborhood—engaged communities are thriving communities. We offer several ways for you to support and participate in the organization, no matter your interest or time. 


We envision a vital, diverse and connected neighborhood built on our unique historic character that brings people together.  

As we lay out in our operating model, we have many ways for your voice to be heard and we will be re-enforcing that in all our future communications. This operating model largely follows three core channels of engagement; be informed, get engaged, amplify your voice. 

RHA Education

For the first channel, we will be increasing the opportunities to read, attend, and propose educational material, meetings, and lectures. 

RHA Visibility

For the second, we will be increasing the visibility and accessibility of both RHA Board Meetings and SUPC Board Meetings, of which RHA is a Board Member. 

RHA Amplification

For the third, we will be formalizing how RHA can bring your cause to either the SUPC or our City Council Member to ensure your voice is amplified.
