More About Riverside
Riverside has always been an active community. In the 1920s, there was a group of business people who organized the Riverside Commercial Club. The members purchased the Riverside Fire Station at 2816 Maple from the city for one dollar to be used as their meeting place. The club was responsible for moving the bridge from Everett Avenue to Hewitt Avenue. The present I-5 highway was started by the club and the street lights from 41st Street and Broadway to the river bridge were sponsored by the club. (1)
The Greater Riverside Organization (GRO) was founded in the mid-70s. The present day organization's name was changed in the mid-90s to the Riverside Neighborhood Association (RNA). With mini grants from the City of Everett, the RNA is able to develop programs to serve Riverside residents from 19th Street to Pacific Avenue, from Broadway to the Snohomish river. Many community members have brought ideas and energy to the RNA forming the basis for new activities and community improvements.
