About

Our Mission

The BHCA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and our mission is to improve the quality of life in our neighborhood through the actions of residents who volunteer their time, skills, and energy by working closely with neighbors, historic districts, local businesses, schools, community organizations, the 3rd district council office, and city staff. 

The BHCA and its membership support many community-centered activities including the following:

 

  • Our award-winning community newsletter. 

  • Meet neighbors and listen to guest speakers at our monthly meetings.

  • Belmont Heights Historic Districts.

  • Belmont Heights Make a Difference Day.

  • Belmont Heights Art & Architecture Tours.  

  • Egg Hunt in the Heights.

  • Goblin in the Greenbelt.

  • Holiday tree lights in the Colorado Lagoon.

  • A yearly PTA donation to one of our local public schools.

  • COVID-19 Meals on Wheels of Long Beach Donation.

Our History

The roots of the BHCA date back to 1910 and has been known throughout the decades as the Belmont Improvement Association (1910s), Belmont Heights Improvement Association (1940s), and Belmont Heights-Belmont Park United Citizens (1970s).

 

The BHCA, as known today, started taking shape in the early 1990s. Its focus then was compiling accurate crime statistics. The group was reactivated in 2005, led by Dianne Sundstrom, Maureen Neeley and Marc Coleman in reaction to the teardowns and rebuilds considered out of character to the neighborhood.

 

Today, the BHCA is comprised of homeowners, renters, and business owners who seek to provide a healthy forum for neighborhood solutions and community gatherings. Our volunteer board and members continue the legacy of those early Belmont Heights residents and leaders who sought to improve life in our neighborhood.
