About Us

History

The Bay View Neighborhood Association was created in 2004 by a group of residents passionate about Bay View.  Using a traditional grassroots approach, this group invited all Bay Viewers to form a neighborhood association to give a voice to the residents of Bay View. True to form, Bay View residents responded. In 2005, the organization was granted 501(c)(3) charitable organization status by the IRS.
