  • Mission:
  • Since Hurricane Katrina, the Broadmoor Improvement Association has been faced with an extraordinary challenge: to organize and lead the residents of Broadmoor in a coordinated and effective rebuilding effort. The BIA is the community vehicle for residents to participate in the planning and implementation of recovery projects. The mission statement for the BIA was modified to incorporate the mission of rebuilding the physical and social aspects of neighborhood:

    “The vision for Broadmoor is to fully repopulate the neighborhood, rebuild the infrastructure and institutions, and develop a safer, stronger community that is committed to providing a better quality of life for all residents.”

    Since the storm, the BIA led an organizing campaign that brought residents together in a comprehensive, grassroots planning effort that resulted in a 326 page redevelopment plan for the neighborhood. It has contributed to the redevelopment of the neighborhood by spearheading efforts to restore educational services, civic gathering space, and social services to residents.

  • History:
  • The Broadmoor Improvement Association is one of the oldest neighborhood associations in New Orleans. Established in 1930 as the Broadmoor Civic Improvement Association to address the needs of the developing Broadmoor neighborhood, it was incorporated in 1970 as the Broadmoor Improvement Association, Inc. to stop “blockbusting” in Broadmoor, at the time a well-established, multi-racial/multi-ethnic community already living in harmony. Since that time, the BIA has worked continuously to improve the neighborhood, stopping commercialization in the residential core, reducing crime, and ensuring that educational and civic organizations thrive – among them the Rosa F. Keller Center and Library. BIA joined with Rebuilding Together to repair homes of low-income elderly or handicapped and to re-tree neutral grounds and the Martin Luther King park area. The BIA works closely with the city government and has represented Broadmoor residents in numerous cases concerning zoning and other issues.
