Adopt-a-Block Grant

The Bellevue Neighborhood Association’s annual Adopt-A-Block program is a reimbursement grant program available to active BNA members.  2018’s designated area will encompass Hazen, the 400 block of Berry, the 400 block of Clark, the 100 block of Center and the 100 block Retreat.  After July 10th, the program’s remaining funds will be open to all BNA members.  Grants will range from $150-$400.  Applications and additional information will be delivered to the assigned area along with membership fliers.  In past years, grants only covered work visible from the street, however this year we are also covering approved work from the alleys.  In addition, this year we are offering 4 reimbursement grants of $50 for chain link fence removal.  This portion is available throughout Bellevue.

Last year’s reimbursements were almost $3,000.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Programs

The Bellevue Garden Team

The Garden Team works with city staff to keep Bellevue’s public spaces beautiful and blooming. Each season a variety of plants and flowers are designed, placed, and maintained throughout the city. The efforts of the Garden Team truly contributes to the charm and appeal of Bellevue. Click here to learn more about the new Hanging Basket program.

Cantastic

artswave“Bellevue is Can-tastic” is a project of the BNA with support from ArsWave. The project will install original works of art throughout the city of Bellevue. The art will transform 10 concrete trash cans along our streets in 2015. Residents will get to experience and watch art in its creation. A committee has formed and are working out the details. We are looking for local artists to design and paint the cans, especially those that would like to collaborate with students at the local schools. We are also looking for volunteers interested in helping paint base coats and assist the artists on the project. Please consider a donation to support this effort and to expand the number of cans. If you are interested in getting involved please email Bridget Vogt, blyndvogt@gmail.com.

City Decorating

BNA partners with the City of Bellevue to ensure that the city looks festive and bright during the holiday seasons. Decorations and lights are hung along Fairfield Avenue and throughout the neighborhoods within Bellevue. Currently, there is a focus on decorating for the fall and winter.

Community Garden

Begun in 2011 with assistance from the Campbell County Extension Office and the City of Bellevue; the Community Garden is a place for Bellevue residents of all ages and gardening experience to share and gain knowledge on growing and gardening. Located at the end of the alley between the 400 blocks of Foote and Ward Avenues, the Community Garden’s harvest is shared and enjoyed among the gardeners and neighbors of “Blossom Alley”. The Community Garden is worked Thursday evenings at 6:30pm and Sunday mornings at 10:30am.

Tree Planting

With an understanding that trees add to the allure and value of a community’s neighborhoods; BNA partners with the City of Bellevue’s tree board to replace damaged, dead or diseased trees in our parks and public rights of way. This program not only adds to the aesthetic beauty of Bellevue, but educates our citizens on environmental contributions to a healthy and vibrant urban forest.
