"The BCNA has become a sounding board for the council… particularly for the development that's happening. I know all of my colleagues take some solace in the fact that whatever's been proposed in Bishops Corner has been screened by the BCNA because this is the group that's on the ground and cares the most about Bishops Corner, and in many cases has been here for generations... and that's a very powerful thing."
-Former Mayor Scott Slifka
