Foggy Bottom Association


 

About

Description

The Foggy Bot­tom Asso­ci­a­tion was formed in 1955 and for­mally incor­po­rated in the Dis­trict of Colum­bia on June 19, 1959, as the Foggy Bot­tom Restora­tion Asso­ci­a­tion. The present name was for­mally adopted in 1965. The FBA was founded to enhance and pro­tect the res­i­den­tial qual­ity of the area and keep res­i­dents informed on mat­ters affect­ing the community.

 

The objec­tives of the FBA are to fur­ther the civic, cul­tural, social and eco­nomic wel­fare of the Foggy Bottom/West End com­mu­nity; pre­serve and enhance the res­i­den­tial char­ac­ter of the com­mu­nity; and pro­mote his­toric preser­va­tion in the area.

 

The phys­i­cal area of the FBA approx­i­mates that of the Foggy Bottom/West End Advi­sory Neigh­bor­hood Com­mis­sion 2A, i.e., the inte­rior of the areas bounded by Rock Creek on the west, the Potomac River on the south; an east­ern limit defined by an imag­i­nary line drawn north­ward from the Potomac River to and along 15th Street to Penn­syl­va­nia Avenue to 20th Street, and again north­ward on 20th Street to N Street; and west­ward along N Street to Rock Creek.

 

The Foggy Bot­tom Asso­ci­a­tion holds meet­ings every month (except for July, August, and Decem­ber), usu­ally on the last Tues­day evening. Meetings feature speakers on varied topics of interest to residents, as well as social events. Atten­dance at FBA meet­ings is open to all.
