The vision of Bayview Village will be shaped by local residents, business owners, and shoppers. This is a long-term plan, so it’s important for us to seek input and advice from those within the community at every step. A series of ongoing open houses will provide updates and seek feedback throughout the entire process. We invite you to participate.
