Our Mission

The Bloomfield-Garfield Corporation (BGC) exists to improve the quality of life for all in Garfield and surrounding neighborhoods through active community engagement. Community-based and board-driven, one of the BGC’s main goals is to get as many people in the community as possible to participate in the efforts aimed at physical revitalization, an improved economy and strengthened social well-being.


Board meetings are held at 6:30 p.m. on the second Monday of every month, at the BGC Community Activity Center (113 N. Pacific Ave.), and are open to the public.
