Historical Neighborhood Survey: Do your part!

The BHNA needs you!  The City of Long Beach has asked us to help them update our photo images of homes and buildings along with character defining features within our Historic District. The city will use these photos to help better document our residential inventory to date. Additionally, images for character defining features will be catalog to better assist homeowners as to how to deal with those features when remodeling or altering their homes.


If you would like to assist in this effort, please plan to attend a brief one hour training session on Saturday December 13, 2014 at 10:00am.  All materials for the documenting process will be handed out to volunteers. The location for the training session will be announced shortly.

We must have as many volunteers as possible in order to accomplish our goal by December 31, 2014.  Please respond at info@bluffheights.org, so we may add you to our volunteer list and email you with the location of the training session by December 10, 2014.  Thank you for your support!
