The Bayshore Beautiful Neighborhood Association (BBNA) is a volunteer-run neighborhood association founded in 1988. The Association's boundaries are Gandy Boulevard, Bayshore Boulevard, Himes Avenue, and El Prado with the recently added streets, Julia Street & Julia Circle. 


We are a membership-based organization that is designed to advocate on behalf of our neighbors to local governments, keep residents informed on matters affecting our neighborhood, and are charged with organizing activities to help bring the neighborhood together.

Police Patrols

Through your generous donations, our Association is able to fund off-duty patrols for our neighborhood. Each patrol is $43/hour, and each shift is three hours. The off-duty officer has been coming between the hours of 10 PM - 3 AM based on availability. 


We were fortunate enough to be able to fund these patrols with our current police patrol donations through June 2024, but we depend on your continued generosity to keep the fund going as the membership fees do not cover this extra service for our neighborhood. 


Please consider donating to the patrol fund today by clicking on the link. Our neighbors will thank you!

More information coming soon!

Neighborhood Watch Leader Wanted!

At the BBNA town hall, we included the option to vote yes/no on the ballot to join the neighborhood watch program. It was unanimous, and we are now looking for a dedicated and enthusiastic volunteer(s) to lead it. Below is a list of criteria outlined by the Tampa Police Department.


You will need:

  • A person or group of people committed to starting a Neighborhood Watch.

  • A planning committee to initiate the program.

  • A list of what issues initially need to be addressed in your community.

  • A means of communicating with the residents, e.g. e-mail, social media, phone trees, flyers, etc.

  • Publicity for the initial Neighborhood Watch meeting.

  • A meeting agenda to keep things moving and on track.

  • A place to meet—community center, school, library or any public meeting place.

  • A Community Partnership Liaison to discuss the crime issues and help train members of the community.


This will be a neighborhood effort, but we are looking for one neighbor to take the lead on this program. This position will require strong leadership skills to get this off the ground. Please give this some thoughtful consideration if you think this position is for you. More information about the program can be found here. Reach out to us with your interest at
