Marina Bay Neighborhood Council

Neighbors:

Due to the COVID-19 virus and the current “Stay-at-home order”, Marina Bay Neighborhood Council has canceled its May 6th, 2020 meeting.

In the meantime, we would like to share a few updates:

1. Effective May 4, Richmond’s Marina Bay Tennis Courts will begin getting a new lift to include court resurfacing, new tennis net posts, new nets and new court color and lines.
Please be aware there will be temporary disruption due to construction.
2. MBNC is looking into ways to hold future meetings online and with public participation as we prepare for “Election Night”.
3. Please visit the main COVID-19 City of Richmond page for essential information.

Please check back periodically for future communication and updates on happenings in Marina Bay.

* Don’t forget to respond to Census 2020, online or via paper response! Much needed funds to support community services and appropriate representation in Congress and the State Legislature for the next ten years depend on accurate counts. It is feared that California and its large metro areas will go undercounted, especially due to the disruption in our lives caused by “shelter at home” mandates. Please complete your census survey and encourage your friends and neighbors to do so as well!

We hope everyone is safe and well and look forward to seeing you all very soon.

Thank you!
MBNC


“The Neighborhood Council provides the machinery for citizens to function directly in shaping their own community life.” — Lucretia Edwards

Who We Are...

The City of Richmond enabled the formation of Neighborhood Councils in recognition of the value of self-governance. The Marina Bay Neighborhood Council provides a forum for all Marina Bay residents to exchange ideas on community issues, to help solve neighborhood problems, and to function as a resource for information concerning public and private agencies, government entities, and the legislative process.

  • We are organized and managed by Marina Bay residents.
  • Everyone has an opportunity to speak out to make a difference in the Marina Bay neighborhood.
  • We are empowered to act on issues of crime, traffic, local schools, policies, and intended actions of governmental bodies.
  • We assist in making the changes necessary for building a clean, safe, and attractive environment in which to live.
  • Our success depends on the active involvement of volunteers, both residents and business owners, to get to know each other and to work together to promote a thriving community.
  • At our meetings, we cannot as an organization or as individuals representing the organization, discuss, support, or oppose candidates for office.
  • We can, however, support or oppose causes and measures and on occasion may vote whether or not to endorse such a cause or measure.

Our strength comes from our membership. The more members we have, the louder our “voice”. Please join the Marina Bay Neighborhood Council so that we can be heard.
