Please join a team of neighbors, city staff, and volunteers to plant donated trees in our wonderful neighborhood. Trees reduce greenhouse gases, provide habitat, reduce cooling costs, and increase property values. You can help make a difference! All tools and supplies provided.

Thank you to all our neighbors who came to our Spring Neighborhood Forum. If you missed the meeting, you can view a PDF of the presentation here: BHNA April 2015 Presentation
We had the pleasure of meeting our new Police Chief, Robert Luna, as well as the newly promoted East Division Commander, Liz Griffin. Both Chief Luna and Commander Griffin had the same thing to say: the residents of the neighborhood are the eyes and ears of the police. If you see something suspicious, don’t hesitate to call them. It is with our help and vigilance that the police are able to catch the bad guys. You can either call 911 or the police non-emergency number 435-6711. Also, smile, wave and say “Hello” to our police – they love it when we show that we care!
NEWSFLASH: You can do something about helicopter noise pollution – call the new helicopter complaint number at 424-348-HELI. The more complaints the airport receives, the less helicopters will buzz our neighborhood. Please put this number in your phone and call frequently.
Also presented at the neighborhood forum was an impressive report by the Port of Long Beach detailing their 10 year Green Port Policy. You can view a PDF of the presentation here: Bluff Heights Green Port
And last, but not least, congratulations to our BHNA 1915 homeowners! The BHNA honored 24 gorgeous homes built in 1915, and several lovely neighbors spoke about their Centennial homes, the restoration process and living in a historic district. You can view a PDF here: 100 Year Houses 2015
Please join us for the BHNA’s Winter Neighborhood Forum on Sunday, January 25th at 1:00 P.M. The forum will be held at La Parolaccia’s Pizza Parlour, Bacco Enoteca, located at 2945 East Broadway Street.
Come in, have an appetizer and meet your neighbors as well as our new Police Chief, Robert Luna. 2nd and 3rd district representatives will also be in attendance. This unique community meeting will be an “Open Microphone” style meeting where you can speak your mind and hear what your neighbors have to say. We look forward to seeing you!
The Bluff Heights Neighborhood Association would like to thank all who participated in the inaugural “Bluff Heights Feeds” Food Drive. Our collection box located at B&B Restoration Hardware Store, on behalf of the “Help Me/Help You” Food Bank, was near full. You can see all the carry bags filled with canned goods destined for those who are needy right here in Long Beach.
BHNA will continue to reach out to those less fortunate than ourselves as part of its mission. Once again, “Cheers” to all who made a canned food donation, and let’s try to double our giving again next year. Happy Holidays!
Thanks for your help and support!
Congratulations to our Celebration of Lights Winners!
