Please Contribute to the BQE Fund

The Mayor’s creation of an independent panel to take a fresh look at the options for reconstructing the BQE is an encouraging step. But as a community, we cannot be complacent.  To sustain our advocacy for a 21st century solution that does not include a 6-lane highway at our doorstep, the BHA has engaged the services of strategic, historic preservation and legal consultants.   

While funds were raised in the fall, our expenses continue to mount.  Your donations now to the BHA’s BQE Fund will make a difference.  Please be as generous as you can.
