Grants

Adopt-a-Block Grant

Continuing the mission of “Transforming Bellevue, One Block at a Time,” each year the City of Bellevue selects different neighborhood blocks to receive new curbing, street resurfacing and additional street trees. An added bonus is the opportunity for financial grants funded through BNA to help homeowners repair and improve the exterior of their homes and remove unsightly chain link fencing. BNA tries to coordinate the Adopt-a-Block with one of the City chosen blocks for a maximum impact.

The 2017 Adopt-a-Block is the Beach Park Neighborhood. Homeowners can qualify for up to $400 matching grants or 100% of total project costs up to $400. Grant applications are available exclusively for Adopt-a-Block applicants through July 15th, after which time applications will be available to homeowners outside the Adopt-a-Block area until August 31st.

Questions and requests for additional information can be directed to Eric Haas at (859) 291-4890 or grants@bna-ky.com.

The Bellevue Garden Team

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.
