Time for BHCA nominations is now. Please come forward…

Members mingle at first-ever BHCA Open House earlier this month (Zhee Chatmon)

Now’s your opportunity to nominate yourself or a neighbor to make BHCA even better.

BHCA’s nominating process is underway for board members and officers to serve two-year and longer terms leading the neighborhood organization. To qualify as a nominee, or to nominate someone, you only must be a member.

A member can be any adult resident of the neighborhood or the owner or employe of a business or property. Students and faculty at MICA or other neighborhood institutions are eligible as well. (Residents means renters, homeowners or those living in student and senior facilities.)

The nominating committee this year is chaired by Margaret DeArcangelis. Submissions should go to nominating@boltonhillmd.org.

BHCA is not “they,” BHCA is you: giving us all greenery, keeping us all safer, reporting what’s going on, and linking us all to the City, to Midtown and MICA, Madison Park and Marble Hill, and to each other. As a member of BHCA, you are part of a strong, recognized voice with the City.

As a board member, you have a seat at the table and direct access:

  • State Center redevelopment planning
  • Proposed City zoning and charter amendments
  • Councilman Costello and Councilman Torrence
  • Developers, ensuring their projects fit well within Bolton Hill
  • City Department of Transportation to urge them [repeatedly] on slowing traffic
  • City Department of Housing and Community Development, responsible for Pedestal Gardens redevelopment

And as an officer, you gain awareness of the many projects, large and small, that your neighbors start and shepherd and bring to fruition.

Hope you’ll jump at the chance to get a little more involved, do stuff with a few more neat people, and get the reward of feeling more of the love of Bolton Hill.

Email nominating@boltonhillmd.org to make the jump or invite someone in!
