Broadway has been buzzing with activity and there seems to be positive new developments announced daily. This is due to several factors including the efforts of local businesses, town officials, students and community nonprofits like the Broadway Hometown Partnership.
If you have not heard of the Broadway Hometown Partnership you have likely enjoyed some of the events they organize or passed by a project they worked on. These include the Autumn Days & Car Show, Red White & Brew music summer music in the park and Octoberfest. Each event set records for attendance in 2021.
Sometimes referred to as “BHP” the organization is made up of 15 board members who volunteer their time and one Administrative Coordinator. The group was assembled in 2001 with the goal of ensuring the town is beautifully kept, intentional about economic development, and holds enjoyable events for residents and visitors alike.
Much of the planning BHP does begins in one of the 3 committees that meets each month and then is approved by the board in a monthly board meeting. These meetings are open to the public and people who would like to be involved in the discussion or are curious about possibly participating are encouraged to attend. A schedule of dates and times can be found on their website or by messaging directly on Facebook.
In addition to the events and projects BHP conducts they also support other events held by the Town of Broadway or private citizen led events including Kid’s Fishing Day and the annual Easter Event. This work is possible because of the volunteer efforts of board members, citizen volunteers and sponsors.
In 2022 BHP has allocated money toward some exciting projects to bring attention to local businesses through a carefully crafted media campaign, fund beautification projects and add improvements to public spaces around town. Even a large mural project is being explored!
