From January to April of 2017, Bowdoin Geneva Main Streets (BGMS) has partnered with graduate students at MIT’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning to create a new vision for the commercial district. Out of that partnership, a robust plan for economic development and physical design interventions have been created with tremendous community input and support. Long portrayed as a neglected area, this plan now provides the Bowdoin Geneva community multiple methods to discard its negative image, and reimagine how its commercial district operates. While we have laid out the solutions, we need your help to accomplish this goals.
On June 22nd, BGMS will kickoff the start of a campaign to reinvent the neighborhood at our annual Wine Tasting fundraiser. You can help by purchasing tickets and introducing others to Bowdoin Geneva Main Streets as a place to dine, shop and play. Your support is key in turning our neighborhood around. The details of the event can be found here.
