In June 2017, the Briarwood Community Association held its last meeting at Melrose Credit Union.

Due to the retirement of its president, Seymour Schwartz, a hand-picked successor was elected without a proper democratic vote by its members - a mere show of a few hands, and no alternate candidates.

Since the BCA claims it has no venue for monthly meetings, there has not been a meeting since June - three missed monthly meetings.

No monthly newsletter has been published or distributed to the community-at-large. No Christmas party seems to have been planned. For several years, there has been no Christmas tree in the Briarwood mall.

What has been happening with the BCA membership fees and government grants?

Three stores are presently vacant and a fourth closed.

The public parking garage on 84th Drive has been closed for months under a city vacate order due to severe and dangerous structural defects, with trash accumulating on the adjacent sidewalk.

Something is rotten in Denmark (Shakespeare, “Hamlet”) . . .

Mr. Manago, Regards.

What has been happening with the BCA(Briarwood Community Association) membership dues and government grants?

Good question.

Answer and likely scenario is they're mismanaging these funds for personal use and for stores to be vacant and a fourth one having closed.
Whoever is in charge at the top at the BCA just DOESN'T care.
Likely also, they DON'T care that the public parking garage on on 84th Drive has been closed with trash accumulating.

It DOESN'T take a rocket scientist to know that the demographics of the Briarwood Community is changing and NOT for the better.
Just what kinds of people are living in that community. People mainly from Central America, South America and Asia(India, Pakistan, Bangladesh) in their countries of origin, most live in filthy conditions and bring along with them those bad habits when they arrive here in the US.
