The History of the BNO

What a long ride it has been! We established the BNO in 2008 and have grown quite a bit since then. 


Officers are elected annually to lead the BNO. Officers include the President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary. Officers are BNO Members who live within the boundaries of The Burroughs Neighborhood


Officers are featured below.


The BNO hosts monthly meetings, weather and pandemics permitting, with the option of taking off in July and December. One meeting is the General Meeting, to which the public is invited to hear useful information, and to voice their opinions. 


Meetings dates and times are posted on our home page, calendar, and Facebook Group.

Core Members

Core Members take an active role in making the decisions that steer the direction of the Burroughs Neighborhood Organization. Core Members may meet an extra evening per month to dedicate their time and energy to the finer details of maintaining our neighborhood, if needed.
