BNA Committees are groups of volunteers committed to addressing a certain issue or set of related issues. Any resident, property owner, or business owner can be a voting committee member. Committees meet monthly at the BNA office (4120 17th Ave S). Volunteering on a committee is a great way to get involved in something specific in the neighborhood.

If you are interested in any of the committees below please contact us and we’ll get you more information:
