Friends of the Boneyard

Friends of the Boneyard is a community group of all kinds of people coming together to voice their ideas on what they’d like to have at different stages and segments of the Boneyard Creek. Whether you’re a business owner, local resident, parent, child, student, young professional, musician, artist, developer, restaurant owner and so on, we want to hear your ideas for events, activities, and anything else you’d like to see incorporated in the Boneyard Creek Master Plan! To note, this isn’t to change the Plan, but to add community input on what locals would like to have and experience at the Boneyard’s different segments.

We will be using the Popularise platform (coming soon!) to collect ideas, but we’ll be using this blog site to give more background information, updates, post pictures, and generally keep you informed and host vital information!

Of course, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at: friendsoftheboneyard@gmail.com.

We look forward to reading your ideas!
