BAMRA is more than a block association and more than a merchants' association - it brings the two together for a stronger community. BAMRA endeavors to create an atmosphere of cooperation that enhances the quality of life for residents and the success of our area's small businesses.

Services BAMRA Provides via Member/Volunteers

  • Hold useful and fun events like "Learn to Ride" bicycles for kids, "Operation Safe Child," and a "Community Shred" for identity protection.
  • Remove graffiti on street furniture and paint the lampposts, mailboxes and street signs in the neighborhood.
  • Plant greenery to keep the area beautiful.
  • Weigh in on liquor license and sidewalk cafe applications.
  • Provide holiday signage, making the area brighter and more cheerful throughout the season.
  • Get involved in local land issues.
  • Organize local street fairs which raise funds for community needs.
  • Increase awareness of illegal drug use, underage drinking and public safety issues.
  • And much more!
