Breaking News and Current Projects
In the Summer of 2023 the BVPF was excited to procure new “U” shaped bike racks to be installed at 7 locations in the Village- BCC Golf, BCC Tennis, South Country Rd./CVS, Municipal parking lot, Village Hall, Community Center, and the Marina. They will be installed by the Village over the Winter and should all be in place by the Spring of 2024. This increase in bike racks in the Village is aimed at increasing cycling in the Village by providing new, attractive and secure bike racks at these key locations.
THANK YOU BVPF AND THE VILLAGE!
Air Conditioning the Bowling Alley - late 2023
In 2019, the Village, together with the BVPF, held a grand opening of the newly renovated activity room and antique bowling alley in the basement of the Village Community Center.
It has been met with great enthusiasm from all the residents. Of course right after its use was greatly restricted by Covid and then termites. However today it remains a highly sought out area for resident enjoyment year round and the Village Kids Camp during the Summer.
One of the biggest issues that arose very early on was the lack of heat and A/C in the space. The heat issue has been resolved but the lack of A/C remains a significant issue when using the space, even in the Winter. In reaction to this, the BVPF raised funds in 2020 using the A/C of the Bowling alley space as our keystone project.
Work has been completed in late 2023 with the installation of a ducted system with two Trane 3.5 ton condensing units outside the building.
THANK YOU BVPF!
