Bayside Neighborhood Organizational Structure

The Bayside Neighborhood Association (BNA) conducts monthly meetings open to all residents of the entire Bayside Community at large. BNA functions as a vehicle connecting the residents of our community with the City of Everett and what’s going on in the City. We invite local civic-minded speakers, local government officials and administrators, city council, police, non-profits, to share information with Bayside residents in effort to engage and educate our community.

The Bayside Steering Committee (SC) is a group of volunteers within BNA, who support the four Executive Board members to provide direction to the association. People invited to participate on the SC attend working meetings the 2nd Tuesday of each month. At those meetings we design, plan, schedule, and execute community events, figure out what needs doing and who’s going to do it, decide how much to budget and how it will be paid for. The Bayside SC is the group that applies for grants and executes how those grants are spent for the benefit of the Bayside community.

Neighborhood Associations

There are 19 neighborhood associations (NA's) in the City of Everett based on geographic locations. Each NA is linked with the city via the Council of Neighborhoods (CON). The Council is an advisory group to the Mayor, providing an opportunity for City elected leaders to hear the concerns or ideas Everett residents have about city plans, services and policies. Each NA elects or selects its representatives: two regular representatives and one alternate representative.


The City of Everett provides a $1,000 community grant (mini grant), which each NA can apply for, to carry out community events to support activities identified by the steering committee in December. Mini grant applications are due to the City of Everett in February of the following year. Members of the steering committee take on the responsibility of leading an activity designated in the mini grant.

Donations are appreciated!

Many of our projects include costs that cannot be covered by Mini-Grant funds, so donations are needed to fill in the gaps.

One way you can support our efforts is to volunteer your time, however, if giving your time is not possible, a cashdonation is another great way. We are requesting donations of $26/year ($0.50/week) to assist us in our efforts to make the Bayside Neighborhood a great place to live and work!
