Mission & Vision
Broad Community Connection’s mission is to revitalize Broad Street from Tulane Avenue to Bayou Road as a vibrant commercial corridor, bringing together the surrounding neighborhoods and promoting their economic, residential, and cultural development.
Broad Community Connections was founded and received its 501(c)(3) designation in 2008 in order to address long-
standing community revitalization needs that were only exacerbated in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The organization was deliberately constituted to be as inclusive, equitable, and expansive as possible, and the composition of its Board of Directors and the range of BCC’s programming continues to reflect that aspiration.
Broad Community Connections’ board came together to deliberately draw together the diverse set of interests and stakeholders on Broad Street and in the surrounding communities, including the businesses and property owners, residents, organizations, and institutions. The full board list can be viewed here.
Broad Community Connections was officially designated as a Louisiana Main Street district in January 2009, and BCC has adopted and expanded the four-point Main Street approach to community revitalization to meet the specific needs of Broad Street business and property owners, and the surrounding community. BCC undertakes programs to holistically address challenges and opportunities, promoting community economic development, social and promotional events, urban design and preservation assistance, and organizational development and community capacity building. BCC also has development projects of its own, such as the ReFresh Project.
