Broadmoor Improvement Association is a non-profit neighborhood organization that serves those who live, work, and play in our community through a coordinated network of anchor institutions, faith-based partners, and businesses. Founded in 1930, the BIA has grown with New Orleans to preserve the diverse culture and voices that form the core of Broadmoor’s identity. We strive to redefine what it means to be a neighborhood association by living the values that bring us together and celebrate our diversity.

“Those of us who live in Broadmoor take justifiable pride in that fact. For ours is a beautiful neighborhood.” - Moon Landrieu



We envision a thriving Broadmoor neighborhood that is known for being racially and economically diverse, welcoming, walkable and safe, in which neighbors eat, play, gather, and grow together while actively participating in the betterment of the community.




Opportunity | Diversity | Community | Transparency | Wellness | Safety | Engagement


The BIA offers a spectrum of wellness services and programs to help our community thrive. We offer sliding-scale counseling services to individuals, couples, and families. In addition, our team of social work interns can connect residents to quality of life support, including food access, housing, workforce development, and special needs for youth and senior residents. With the help of dedicated volunteers, we operate the Broadmoor Food Pantry twice weekly, which has helped increase accessibility to fresh food by 87% since 2016. 


The Arts & Wellness Center is at the center of our mission. Together with our Community Center connected to Rosa F. Keller Library, we offer more than 25 weekly classes, meetings, and workshops available for free or low-cost to Broadmoor residents. The AWC also provides affordable office space to five direct-service non-profits and a membership program ideal for incubating new businesses and community organizations. From youth ballet to yoga for teachers, our classes appeal to all ages and interests.

First passed in 2010, the Lousiana Legislature designated Broadmoor as a Neighborhood Improvement District. This vote established Broadmoor’s official boundaries defined by: 

  • Eve Street to the north

  • Washington Avenue and Toledano Street to the east 

  • South Claiborne Avenue to the south

  • Jefferson Avenue, South Rocheblave Street, Nashville Avenue, and Octavia Street to the west

Our organization is managed by an Executive Director and a Board of Commissioners who are publicly elected. Board members represent three distinct subgroups within Broadmoor, identified as A, B, and C. Since 2010, Broadmoor residents have consistently voted in favor of tax funding that supports our organization’s general operating needs and quality of life programs.

The Broadmoor Board of Commissioners meets from 6:30–8:00 pm the second Thursday of every month. Email sarahp@broadmoorimprovement.com for more information on board service.

On Saturday, September 4, the BIA's Board of Commissioners will convene a special meeting to discuss the BIA's response to hurricane Ida.
