Reservoir Hill Improvement Council publishes a variety of publications to convey updates on projects, provide analysis of key issues, stimulate community dialogue, and just keep residents and supporters abreast of events and developments. RHIC’s newsletter, View From the Hill, is published periodically, with the goal of being quarterly, and is delivered free door-to-door in Reservoir Hill and by mail to supporters outside Reservoir Hill. Community Briefing is a monthly email newsletter. Housing News and Notes is an email newsletter published periodically (usually every other month) providing updates on housing projects and policies.
To receive email newsletters, write to firstname.lastname@example.org
RHIC encourages our readers to provide feedback on our publications, and suggestions for what you might like to see in future issues.
