(BCCA) was formed by a group of dedicated neighbors in 1978, formerly known as the Archwood-Denison Concerned Citizens. Our purpose is to help make our neighborhood a better place for all. We are your friends and neighbors who are passionate about our neighborhood, and we want to recruit you in the cause. The BCCA holds monthly meetings to discuss ongoing projects and put our minds together around the issues we all face.

Brooklyn Memorial United Methodist Church
2607 Archwood Avenue
Join us and share your ideas. We have assembled an amazing group of mechanics and tradesmen, landscapers and architects, chefs and bakers, financial planners and bankers, crafters and musicians. We have experts on local history and can assist you in picking historic colors to paint your home. We can help in re-storing your property to its splendor. We can write grants and assist in finding resources to suit your ideas. We can help mediate issues between neighbors and can work together on that vacant property or problem house. We can assist in getting that streetlight replaced or that pothole filled. We’ll pick up the shovels and help plant that community garden or put on the gloves and coordinate a street clean-up. We can do an amazing amount of things with all the knowledge and wisdom in this neighborhood, but we just need you!
