About the FBA
The Foggy Bottom Association was formed in 1955 and formally incorporated in the District of Columbia on June 19, 1959, as the Foggy Bottom Restoration Association. The present name was formally adopted in 1965. The FBA was founded to enhance and protect the residential quality of the area and keep residents informed on matters affecting the community.
The objectives of the FBA are to further the civic, cultural, social and economic welfare of the Foggy Bottom/West End community; preserve and enhance the residential character of the community; and promote historic preservation in the area.
The physical area of the FBA approximates that of the Foggy Bottom/West End Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2A, i.e., the interior of the areas bounded by Rock Creek on the west, the Potomac River on the south; an eastern limit defined by an imaginary line drawn northward from the Potomac River to and along 15th Street to Pennsylvania Avenue to 20th Street, and again northward on 20th Street to N Street; and westward along N Street to Rock Creek.
The Foggy Bottom Association holds meetings every month (except for July, August, and December), usually on the last Tuesday evening. Meetings feature speakers on varied topics of interest to residents, as well as social events. Attendance at FBA meetings is open to all.
Members of the Foggy Bottom Association participate in a wide range of activities to improve the community, create neighborhood cohesion, and clean and protect the Historic District and the local environment. Our award-winning biennial Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit attracts guests from all over the world. Our Garden Committee takes care of local public spaces, aided by regular community clean-up efforts. Our Homelessness Task Force works to develop and implement workable solutions to the challenges that homelessness creates in our community.
