Bowling Green Coalition of Active Neighborhoods (BGCAN) Open House Re-Launch

Date: January 30, 2023

Time: 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Contact: Karen Foley

Location: 401 Kentucky St Bowling Green KY 42101


BGCAN last held an at large Rally of the Neighborhoods in January of 2020. While its board members have remained key partners and volunteers throughout COVID and tornado recovery, and while we have tried to maintain a level of social media presence online, we feel it is a better strategy to begin in person with an open house style event to allow participants to meet and greet informally with one another and with some of our key initiatives that have come to the forefront in the last three years.
A networking coalition of neighbors and neighborhood organizations in Bowling Green, KY organized for the purposes of:
~providing a centralized forum for sharing of methods for neighborhood improvement
~educating a neighborhoods regarding Bowling Green resources
~providing a collective voice for action in addressing community wide neighborhood problems
~acting as a liaison with Bowling Green city government
BGCAN first launched in February 2001 and with the support of its board members over the years has helped to shape neighborhood programming and inform decision-making that continues to enhance our neighborhoods today, even with its three year hiatus.
We hope you will join us as we re-launch! If you are interested in serving on the BGCAN Board, please reach out by email to
