The Bloomfield council approved a $590k 2017 budget for the Bloomfield Center Alliance at Monday night’s council meeting.

Ollyn Lettman, Director of the BCA, presented the organization’s plans for 2017. He stated the emphasis in the coming year would be on marketing and advertising the businesses in Bloomfield Center, as well as continuing to hold events to promote the area. Lettman cited last year’s successful block party as an event that they would repeat in 2017. He also said the BCA plans to work with store owners to utilize empty storefronts for temporary “pop-up” shops or galleries in order to entice more people to come to the Center.

Lettman said the BCA plans to initiate a Gateway to Bloomfield project at Parkway Exit 148. He said he was thankful for the help of the township, which provided $70k to pursue this project, allowing them to hire a consultant to design the plan.

The BCA is a non-profit organization that manages and promotes the Bloomfield Center business district. The majority of the BCA’s budget comes from a tax assessment on businesses in the Special Improvement District in Bloomfield Center. Continue Reading
