Blanchardville Community Pride Incorporated (BCPI)


BCPI is a vol­un­teer orga­ni­za­tion whose pur­pose is to pro­tect and enhance Blanchardville’s his­tor­i­cally and cul­tur­ally sig­nif­i­cant down­town com­mer­cial area, which con­sists of build­ings dat­ing back to the early begin­nings of the vil­lage and house diverse busi­nesses vital to the life of the community.

BCPI was formed in 1997 when the exis­tence of Blanchardville’s tra­di­tional com­mer­cial dis­trict was threat­ened by the increas­ing dis­ap­pear­ance of down­town mer­chants which ren­dered the com­mu­nity vul­ner­a­ble to dete­ri­o­ra­tion and ulti­mately, the loss of struc­tures and sites impor­tant to its his­toric char­ac­ter. BCPI seeks to reverse this trend by under­tak­ing activ­i­ties designed to pre­serve its tra­di­tional down­town area as a healthy eco­nom­i­cally vital cen­ter of com­merce and social activ­ity and to pro­mote preser­va­tion, reha­bil­i­ta­tion and reuse of the com­mer­cial, civic and res­i­den­tial build­ings in the tra­di­tional busi­ness district.
