Bayside Neighborhood Association

Mission Statement: 
The Bayside Neighborhood Association (BNA) brings members of the Bayside community together.  BNA brings conversations about Bayside to Bayside and to the greater community in a way that organizes, informs, and empowers residents, social service and other organizations, local businesses, and city representatives to form meaningful and long-term partnerships. BNA preserves and promotes safety, multi-cultural diversity, housing, and carefully planned social, economic, and physical development in this unique urban community.
