What is a Block Captain?

Block Captains

With a goal of empowering Bevo to become a neighborhood of choice in the City of St. Louis, the Bevo Block Captains are committed to encouraging our neighbors’ involvement in the community.  The group will work collaboratively with residents, business owners, the other Neighborhood Ownership Model teams, and the Better Bevo Now board to develop and implement goals for improving the quality of life in the Bevo Neighborhood.

The Block Captain plays an important role in the life of the neighborhood.  The Block Captain serves as a link between the neighborhood and its residents, and also acts as a catalyst among the residents, initiating and guiding efforts to maintain and improve the quality of life in the neighborhood. 

You Don't Have To Do It Alone

The below list of characteristics gives some idea of what is asked of a Block Captain.  Not all items are applicable to every block situation – some blocks are well established while others are in dire need of organizing.  The important issues to be addressed can vary dramatically from block to block.

Most important to note is that a Block Captain is not expected to do it all alone!  In fact, the more that a Block Captain can involve other residents in the effort, the better.

The duties of the Block Captain are constantly evolving. The efforts of past & present Block Captains have helped to build our wonderful neighborhood into the vibrant community we live in.  We greatly appreciate all the efforts of all our Block Captains!
