The Brookland-Bush Hill Civic Association (BBHCA) is located in the Franconia area of Lee District in Fairfax County, Virginia.

The BBHCA service area (click map below) has more than 800 households and consists of Brookland Estates/Bush Hill Woods and Gunnell Estates; the homes on Jane Way, Ninian Court, and Talbois Place on the east; and Brookland Road, Pratt Street, Piedmont Drive, and Saratoga Drive to the west.

MISSION

The purpose of BBHCA is to provide a forum and voice for the community, and to protect and promote the mutual interests and welfare of the residents of Brookland-Bush Hill and environs.

HISTORY

Brookland-Bush Hill Civic Association (BBHCA) was founded in 1980. BBHCA has a long record of successes in our interaction with local and state government officials, local private businesses, and other organizations.

The Pedestrian Underpass on Oakwood Drive and the new improvements to the Pedestrian Walkway under the I-95 Overpass at Van Dorn Street are examples of our civic activities. BBHCA members sit on County Boards, and influence policy for the improvement of Franconia and Rose Hill, Lee District, and Fairfax County.

The officers include a President, First Vice President (newsletter), Second Vice President (membership), Treasurer, and Secretary.
