A tradition 64 years in the making.
Founded in 1956 by twenty family members, the Brookside Civic Association is a non-profit organization of area resident volunteers who represent the 400+ families in our neighborhood. The BCA strives to create and maintain a safe and family-oriented community in which to live. The BCA is governed by a Board of Trustees. A trustee is a resident volunteer elected by the members, and each trustee represents an area of homes within the neighborhood. Officers of the BCA are chosen by the Board. The BCA monitors matters of community interest pertaining to government, education, streets and drainage, sewage disposal and water, public safety and protection, zoning (including deed restrictions), social, recreational, and cultural endeavors and any other matters of general interest brought to the attention of the Association. While the BCA does not have legislative authority, the trustees, nonetheless, present resident concerns to the board which then votes to take appropriate action. The BCA is also a part of the Far Northwest Coalition, a group of area civic associations.
Through membership dues, the BCA sponsors several events throughout the year including an Easter Egg Hunt, Fourth of July Celebration, an autumn Hog Roast, Sleigh Ride, holiday decorating contest, and an annual scholarship awarded to a resident graduating senior. The Association also maintains the Brookside Estates entrances and security lighting.
BCA meetings are held the first Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. at the Brookside Country Club on Route 161. Your ideas, suggestions, concerns and participation are appreciated and needed to continue the BCA’s endeavors to maintain and improve our community. Please join us in serving this beautiful neighborhood!
