BHCA Membership


The Bolton Hill Community Association, Inc. (BHCA) started as The Mount Royal Improvement Association, Inc. (MRIA) in 1928. In 2018, MRIA became a 501(c)3 nonprofit known as BHCA to better reflect the identity of the community. The mission of BHCA is to preserve and enhance the quality of life for the community and to strive to make Bolton Hill the finest neighborhood to live in Baltimore. BHCA endeavors to foster a safe, green, and socially conscious community, which embraces and promotes diversity in all of its activities and membership.

With more than 600 households living or working in the neighborhood, BHCA strives to keep Bolton Hill vibrant and healthy, with lively streetscapes, green parks, and safe and child-friendly streets. BHCA provides the forum for Bolton Hill’s diverse community to define issues, take advantage of opportunities, and respond to challenges facing the neighborhood. BHCA also serves as the official liaison between Bolton Hill and elected officials, government agencies, and neighboring institutions and organizations.

Any individual of voting age who wishes to support the Bolton Hill community is welcome to become a BHCA member, regardless of whether his or her residence is in the neighborhood. Membership includes everyone in a household. BHCA membership is also open to any business, institution, or other nonprofit group in Bolton Hill.
