Organizing for Action

Working with The B.A.R. is how action takes place. Without the bureaucratic red-tape and slow processes of local government, we are able to take instant action when it is needed. 

Stakeholder Inclusion

Whether you are a resident, property owner, business owner, investor or just want to help the revitalization of Blackwood, we are looking to include you in the process.


We can’t do this without involvement from you. However, with your help there is no limit to the things we can do in downtown Blackwood. No help is too small or too big and we need you. Whatever your skills, we can find a role for you.
