57th Street Pocket Park

The Blue Hills Neighborhood Association will build on its successful Blue Hills Beautiful program that encouraged neighbors and neighborhood association members to work to clean up the streets and sidewalks. In addition, in 2020, we plan to install a pocket park at 57th Street, between Euclid and Michigan, and for the time being, we’re calling it the 57th Street Pocket Park.

Block Contact

Block Contacts serve as the eyes and ears of the Blue Hills neighborhood. They serve as a point of contact for people requesting information about the neighborhood, and help spread information about events and other goings on.

The efforts of our Block Contacts help to grow our sense of community, which in turn reduces crime, and enhances the overall quality of life, all through neighbors knowing neighbors.

Blue Hills Community Garden

A new community garden has been built in the Blue Hills neighborhood! It features fifteen raised beds, and it can be found at 49th and Olive. Managed by Leigh Blumenthal (of Blue Hills Community Services) and Blue Hills Neighborhood volunteers. All produce goes to residents for free. Volunteers will be given priority when it comes to harvesting.

Blue Hills Real Estate Meetings

Every month the Blue Hills Neighborhood Association Real Estate Committee meets to discuss and take action on issues related to real estate in the neighborhood. Currently we are seeking titles to vacant properties using data from the Land Bank and Legal Aid of Western Missouri. In the past we have been successful with our 55th street corridor from Prospect Avenue to the Paseo Boulevard.

We meet monthly at 5309 Woodland. Feel free to contact us at the email below for more information.
