BVS FINAL REPORT
The Bloomingdale Village Square (BVS) Project, which is sponsored by the BLOOMINGDALE CIVIC ASSOCIATION seeks to increase community identity and strengthen a sense of 'place', through neighborhood engagement, history, and design of public spaces.
Major project funding was provided by the DC Humanities Council, with additional funding provided by the Bloomingdale Civic Association and ANC 5E.. The BVS Project Committee consisted of nearly 30 persons , who as documented in the attached Final Report, provided assistance collectively valued at more than $81,000!
A BVS 5-hour Community Forum was conducted on 5/21/2016 and attended by more than 75 persons. A second 'Mini Forum" focused on additional vetting of the BVS Architectural & Design Plan will be held in the very near future. If you didn't attend the 5/21/2016 event, then Please Come!
