Central Ballard Residents Association on Thursday, Oct. 11

The Central Ballard Residents Association (CBRA) is having their monthly meeting tonight, (Thursday, Oct. 11) at 7 p.m.

The speaker and guest of honor this month is Rob Mattson, Ballard's neighborhood district coordinator for the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods. For those that don't know, Mattson is the man with all the knowledge of Ballard stored within his head and is called the unofficial mayor of the neighborhood.

"He is the go-to guy for questions on who, what, when, why, or how of happenings in our neighborhood," CBRA said in a press release. "Bring your questions."

The meeting will be held at Swedish Ballard in Conference Room A. All are welcome.
