The BTCA’s mission is to improve the quality our neighborhood environment through beautification and cleanup projects, organize community events, promote Bernard Terrace through public relations, address any public safety concerns, and weigh in on zoning related matters and implementation of EBR’s Future Land Use Plan through active involvement of residents of Bernard Terrace.
We invite homeowners, renters, and businesses to join the Civic Association.
Established in 1925, the Bernard Terrace neighborhood has its name from the natural ridge along Lovers Lane. The boundaries of Bernard Terrace Civic Association are from Acadian Thruway to Foster Drive and Convention Street to Government Street. The Civic Association’s boundary are not congruent with the subdivision designation within EBR Government.
By the early 1940's Calandro's Supermarket opened on Government Street in their present location which back then was considered ‘the country.’ Mid City is bound by I-110 on the west, College and N. Foster on the east, Choctaw to the north and I-10 to the south. It includes several neighborhoods like Ogden Park, Bernard Terrace, and Capital Heights. Always a socially and economically diverse area, Mid City is quickly regaining popularity due to urban renewal and gentrification .
“Good neighbors make a huge difference in the quality of life. ”
